Alyson and I finished taking care of the asparagus and parsley today by spreading a layer of good compost over their bed. Her 3 year old daughter and I had a great time sprinkling the compost layer with Pfeiffer Field and Garden prep to help the compost finish breaking down.
We also planted one small flat of lettuce and trimmed the basil. All this in only two hours of working time.
Oh yes, and Alyson's son (or is that a wood elf?) cut a chunk out of a big vine that has been trying to strangle one of the best shade trees on the property. Thank you mister wood elf! :-)
