    Hi Mrs V,,,,, Have you ever planted any artichoke plants? I just bought some seeds and Iam getting ready to start them indoors to plant in the spring. I've tried to start seeds in the past with no luck,,,,,, any tips? And another thing,,,, have you heard of asparagus beans? They grow between 14- 30 inches and are supposed to be a vigorous growing plant with crisp, tender and delicious beans. Excited about growing this new veggie!

    Just planted 240 one year old asparagus crowns this past spring. They took very nicely in soil that was well amended with peat moss and composted cow manure. Planted them in ten inch wide trenches about 18 inches apart.
    My last asparagus bed of 36 crowns yielded asparagus that was 1.5 inches in diameter and sweet as candy. Didn't mulch them one winter and sure enough, the deep freeze killed off most of them, but a few are still producing 17yrs later.

    Mrs. Volfie, In the fall when the green berrries on your asparagus turn orange, and start to dry out, harvest them.  With in each of those little circular berries you'll fine up to 5 seeds, that can be planted to start even more asparagus for your family.   Mrs. Tc

    Thus far my perennials consist of Rhubarb – yes it is a vegetable 🙂 – chives and asparagus. It would be niice to get some of those onions, too. I will have to make a note of the kind they are and see if I can find some next year. Thanks for this video, Mrs Volfie. (and of course the Mr Volfie)

    I was looking at your tools, the fork, the spade, the rake, and I realized that in a thousand years the basic designs of them has not changed. They're just made out of slightly better stuff.

    Enjoy all that you can grow. My  brother that is 2 years older than I am was removing the supers full of honey  Monday when he died of a massive heart attack. he had removed 23 supers of honey ,loaded it on his truck & was putting the lids back on when he died .it was close to 90 degrees  that afternoon.  he was always growing more than he needed & gave it away.
