Well I work the aspargas ridge today. It's ready to go. Diane's ready for that white aspargas.
Thanks for reminding me knew I needed to get that done. I usually just weed eat mine,spray a little roundup,through on a little manure and let it go. Weeds won't take it until it is done bearing.4imnotright said:Well I work the aspargas ridge today. It's ready to go. Diane's ready for that white aspargas.
If you have it an area that apperance doesn't matter there is nothing to do. Early spring just weed eat it so you can find the shoots.4imnotright said:
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.LikesRedTractors said: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.
