Month by Month Planting Schedule in Each Bed

Early March 2012 -
Asparagus crowns (Little Red Riding Hood Nursery - Lubbock)
(
Unfortunately, in my haste to plant, I didn't keep track of location within the bed.)
   8 Martha Washington crowns
   8 Purple Passion crowns
   8 Jersey King crowns
 

November 2012 - cut back the flowering stalks

2013 - may be able to harvest a few stalks - will have to see
Will plant a tomato or two within the bed.

 

Asparagus Good Neighbors:  Basil, Carrots, Marigolds, Nasturtiums, Parsley, Petunias Tomatoes Bad Neighbors:  Onion, Garlic, Potatoes
  • Parsley & Asparagus increases the vitality of the each other
  • Petunias act as a trap crop
  • Tomatoes protect Asparagus against that awful asparagus beetle.  Tomatoes contain a substance called solanine, which protects against asparagus beetles.
