Last year was the first year (I think) that I dumped bunches of leaves on the asparagus bed, and I ended up with asparagus beetle!
A couple of weeks ago, I cut back the gus, then sprayed with sevin, then covered with leaves.
I have quite a bit of compost almost ready to go.
Should I top the leaves with the compost? Since the bed is permanent, I need to add something because the soil level is dropping. I'm sure the leaves and compost will keep decomposing, so would it be a good idea to add some soil on top of the leaves and compost?
We are only about 2-3 months from the start of gus season! =) and I want to treat them right! Nancy
