Veg on Mars

Here is a news flash: apparently the soil on Mars is highly suitable for growing asparagus, according to the latest report from Nasa. The soil is mildly alkaline (with a PH of between 8 and 9), making it also good for turnips and green beans, but not so good for strawberries. I'm going to apply for my allotment right now.
