I checked mine yesterday but didn't weed it out. I planted mine about 10 years ago and it has really produced. I have thought about splitting some and makeing the row longer but I
hate to do it wrong and making things worst.....mike

We like asparagus but have never planted any. It is just one of those things that get lost in all the other things that need to be done. :roll:

Well I don't like asparagus, but Diane does. She aked me to help her plant some, which I did. She said she would take care of it after that. Yeah Right. Give you 3 guesses who takes care of it and Diane is not the right answer

Cut the first asparagus this morning. Don't ever remember having it in March before. Also will be mowing grass this week, never did that in March either. Bet the fruit trees are going to get a freeze in April. If that happens, no fruit this year.

well I planted my first Asparagus patch last year, used dirt from the old pond bed to half fill the trench, then mulched 'em with leaves and grass clippings. Haven't cut any yet, but those first sprouts are coming through the mulch now. The books say to wait till the third year to harvest, but year two is mighty tempting. As for recipies, grill it, steam it, boil it, flour and fry it, or just drown it in salad dressin'. It's all good fresh. Now that stuff in a can ain't even close.

You do need to be patient!! You don't want to cut it on it's first year.The roots need the nutrician for future years of production.

yeah I know, but it is kind of exciting to have my first permenant bed coming back in the second growing season. Dad's Asparagus bed is into its 5th year and looks (and tastes) great!
