The progress on the new building has continued, though on a much slower pace, as other spring chores have taken precedence. The biggest of these was the delivery of 6,500 asparagus crowns, which finally arrived after weeks of rain.
|Two bundles of crowns, 30-50 crowns in each|
And finally, tucking each crown into its new bed. Luckily for us, this was made ever so much easier by my inventive Dad and his ingenious row-covering device.
Yep, that would be a 3-point bale stabber bracketed to two seat planks from my Grandpa Henderson's old picnic table, pulled by Dad's JD 2020...worked like a dream! We started Sunday afternoon and finished today before noon. A feat only accomplished with some amazing help. Huge thanks to Dad, Mom, Kristin & Uncle Dean for all their hard work, creative thinking, patience & restorative meals!
So now all we have to do is wait two years, and then we hope to have asparagus is abundance!
