You can then put them on a holder where you can heap there carcasses and after that discard it or burry it in the ground. This is a shoddy strategy, as well as you will appreciate doing it.

Slug Traps

Slugs are not elusive creatures. They are mindless and slow moving insects. It is therefore very effective to use traps in getting rid of these insects. You can try digging a hole in the ground and place a can or other open carrier flattened in the soil surface. Pour soap solution or any other similar solution that kills these insects, in that container. Once the slug falls in this container, it will drown easily.

Pellet Baits

Iron Phosphate pellets are effective baits that may immediately eliminate the slug after 6 days of consumption. You can purchase it easily from any garden hardware or insect control store. Spread it all over the garden ground and allow it to kill the unwanted slugs.

You can also try cleaning your garden by relocating away dead logs and big rocks that work as resting places for slugs as well as other damaging insects in your garden.

Planting Asparagus

Asparagus can be developed from seed however Gardening or Farm Stores will suggest planting “1 year crowns”. I very concur as the reap time is moved one year sooner and the crowns have as of now sprouted subsequently lessening the chances of disappointment. These same stores will probably educate you to burrow a trench (typically at least 6 inches profound and 12 inches wide by 2 feet long for every crown).

Asparagus needs great seepage and ripe soil with a nonpartisan ph. of 7.0. Some propose including 1 inch of soil (or fertilizer) consistently until the trench is filled or 2 crawls over the crowns and include 2 inches each year. I pick the last mentioned however not the trench. My dirt is shake and mud, weeds don’t care for it. It won’t deplete water, it is not ripe furthermore extremely hard to burrow. The answer was a raised bed.

First mix compost into the area that is to be the location of the raised bed (my dimensions are approximately four by eight feet), a flat level area is best. Then using Pressure treated 2 x 6 s about eleven inches high and an inch and a half thick, build a box 42.5 x 90.5 inches on the outside. Make sure the diagonals match to insure that the box is square. Then position 2 x 2 stakes at the inside corners and half way down the sides and drive them into the ground. Next, to isolate the pressure treated lumber from the soil, line the bottom, inside and top of the box sides with plastic (a type that won’t leach into the soil and also will prevent the pressure treated lumber from doing the same). Leave the center of the box uncovered and open to the soil. You may attach the sides to the stakes from the outside using short screws to avoid damaging the plastic liner. Add a seat for comfort by cutting 2 x 6 s to create a 4 foot by 8 foot frame that can be attached to the top of the box. Looking down on the box, It will look like a picture frame. (I planted ten crowns in my box)

In Upstate New York, “Mary Washington, Purple Passion and two Jersey Varieties” were recommended to me. I have been very happy with the results.

Plant your asparagus and fill your box by whichever method you favor. Wait at least two years to harvest from crowns and three years for seeds. Stop harvesting before July in most areas and allow the tops to grow as it strengthens the crowns. Add soil (compost) in late fall or very early spring.
Start to enjoy fresh asparagus from your garden, steamed or roasted with butter or Hollandaise sauce. Maybe Eggs Benedict or Ham-Asparagus Strata would suit you better. Yummy.

Asparagus can be frozen. It must be blanched in boiling water, cooled, somewhat dried and placed into freezer containers. If using freezer bags remove as much air as possible. Charts are available in cookbooks and on the web. Time for boiling is based on thickness of the spears. Always snap or cut off the hard woody part and wash before boiling or cooking. Use a processor or blender to puree the removed parts, then strain and make a cream soup with the cleaned pulp. Waste not, as there are a lot of recipes.
