Asparagus and Goumi

I didn’t think the asparagus was going to come up, but all the rain recently must have done it some good.  Its planted in the far corner my my garden plot next to the compost and past the strawberries.

I just planted two Goumi (Goumis?) this week.  They are in the Eleagnus genus along with the Autumn Olive and official invasive species the Russian Olive which you may have seen around.  Goumi came reccomended in the permaculture book Gaia’s Garden.  They grow fast, fix nitrogen and give you fruit too.  So I planted them at the end of two rows.  One is a keyhole bed which has two tomatoes planted in front of the Goumi.  I’m hoping the tomatoes can get in on some of that nitrogen fixin’.
