Admittedly, I do
You see, I need to relocate our strawberry patch this year. It's been in the same spot (within the Field Garden) for way too many years. Last year, I pulled out and gave a decent burial to the oldest half of the strawberry plants because they were absolutely geriatric and not producing enough to justify the space they took up. Knowing I was going to order new plants and situate them in a new section (of the Field Garden) this spring, I did keep the other half of the old bed just so we would have some berries for fresh eating this year.
Some of last year's crop
Also in the Field Garden will go the 50 asparagus roots just ordered. This will be the third time I've planted asparagus, and I'm hoping the third time will be the charm. However, my failure in getting asparagus established before is no one's fault but my own. The first time I planted the roots in a spot that I now know didn't get enough sun . . . and at that time, the soil wasn't amended enough. The second time the soil was in better shape but my brain cells weren't, because I planted the roots in the same, blasted not-enough-sun spot. This time the asparagus is going in the Field Garden where the soil is wonderful AND sunlight is readily available.
So you see, the dilemma is to make a wise decision as to where will be just the right spots in the Field Garden to plant both 200 new strawberry plants and 50 asparagus roots. Both will be wherever I plant them for a loooong time, the asparagus especially, so I want to make a decision I won't regret. I have to take into consideration my other crops such as shell peas, potatoes, squash, corn, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, bush beans, potatoes, pickling cucumbers, etc. that I rotate each year onto a different area in the Field Garden.
Okay, enough of this rambling . . . back out to the kitchen table with my graph paper and pencil. Time to make a decision.
Wish me luck.
