Asparagus---Another Spring time treasure
We have grown asparagus for several years. It involves digging a bed and putting in sand,etc. However, our second bed we did not dig a deep bed and it is doing fine. I do recommend mulching as weeds will take over. I also recommend you read up on planting in your area. It is recommend that you not cut until the second year. Cut the spears with the bud tips are tight. Store standing up in the refrigerator in about 1 inch water until ready for use. I can pick asparagus May-June. If we have have an abundance, I can it for the winter. We usually like to eat it grilled with a olive oil and sprinkled with salt and lemon pepper sprinkled with grated parmesan cheese. Of course I'm always trying new ways to fix asparagus and I have included this one that I'm sure I will make again.
