Does that mean I can quit using 'things are looking down'?? Actually it was late and I think I must have put on my thinking cap when the light went out.... who knows with me!
Apparently asparagus tolerates salt well and likes seaweed a mulch. This is from a well done web site: http://growingtaste.com/vegetables/asparagus.shtml
"Asparagus is said to benefit immensely from heavy mulching, which keeps in the soil moisture and also keeps down weed incursion. If you can get it, dried seaweed is excellent (asparagus tolerates salt well, and some feel a little actually benefits the plants--it evolved as a seaside plant), for it will both mulch and, as it decays, nourish."
So all I gotta do is move a Cub or two so I can dry the seaweed.... probably can get it easily from the guy that 'sweeps' the beach. Just gotta remove the butts, bottle caps and jewelry that also get swept up in the wierd machine. Oops, looks like they already sell it...http://www.boston.com/news/local/massac ... n_seaweed/
