So, while we had more than one sprig mature to eating size this year, the others grew to crazy proportions during the week I didn't check on them and we missed our window. Patience and vigilance required for this tasty crop. Lazy gardeners need not apply.
I will be ordering loads more asparagus starts this week so we can plant the fence line of our property that abuts the alfalfa field and the spears can take advantage of the heavy watering of the hay. We love asparagus and I want hefty crops in years to come. If I order now, then we can all enjoy a nice big bowl of asparagus for dinner.
Mark your calendar.
As I said, patience.
Love from the farm,
