A great example of companion planting this bed exemplifies the full cycle from growth to decay. A low maintenance 4' x 4' raised bed is planted with Asparagus Crowns and mulched with hardwood woodchips. We then innoculate the woodchips with a Culinary Mushroom called Wine Cap Stropharia. You will have big harvests of Mushrooms the first year while leaving time for the asparagus crowns to establish. Asparagus harvests can increase by 30% each additional year after planting. Fresh sautee mushrooms and asparagus to grill up for many summers to come.
