This is barrel 2, slightly better. They have improved a lot over the last week so maybe the rain has done some good for them.
The asparagus has lovely fronds blowing in the wind, they may as well enjoy because they wont be around long enough next year! We must bring up some bags of sea weed to mulch them. This is the second year we have left them go to seed and die back so I am looking forward to next years harvest. They are much bigger and stronger this year and all of the plants have produced 2 spears. So hopefully there will be even more by next year.
