We’ve shredded all of the dried-down asparagus fronds. They are now organic matter for the deep litter method of chicken coop keeping and mulch for the rhubarb.
There was far too much asparagus frond mulch to use a wheelbarrow, so Frank hooked up the cart to the BCS tractor and we transported it that way. Here is a photo:
We chose this particular cart because it’s very stable on slopes and Hill Creek Farm has hilly ground!
The asparagus field looks bare, but under the soil, the asparagus roots are dormant for Winter, waiting for Spring to inspire them to send up green and purple shoots to start the cycle all over again.
