The above shot shows the John Deere Model JB Harrow making short work of the leftover trash in the asparagus patch. Asparagus roots are planted deep enough so that you can cultivate right over them before they come up, without doing any harm.

Harrowing asparagus stubble

    The frost left the ground early this year, and we had a dry spell early this spring, so the ground was workable earlier than usual. When the frost stays in the ground late into the spring, it doesn't allow the surface water to soak in, or go anywhere. That's what they call "mud time" here in New England!
