Is there anything more satisfying than watching farm equipment in action?! Probably so, but anyways… Below is a Valtra T132 tractor with a Baselier rotary ridging cultivator attached to the back of it. Now I know we all want to believe that is actually a Kit Kat farm, but sadly it isn’t (sigh)… It’s actually for growing asparagus.
The seeds are placed in the “bump” which then gets covered in black plastic to protect the plants from sunlight. Letting the white asparagus’ color change to green. It also keeps the water closer to the roots in the troughs so it doesn’t pool by stems and encourage rot.
