April asparagus strip.

So these guys are getting a little more sun. I haven’t picked any as they’re super thin. Anyone ever grow them in a strip before? Initially I planted these here due to the ugly fence I wanted to hide but we ended up rebuilding a beautiful fence! Here’s the before bad after fence…. /during 🙂

New home
