“Asparagrass”

Another learning curve, I found you can snap off the spear where the woody part ends and tender part begins. Mmmm

We used to call it that as a joke but I heard someone call it “Asparagrass” and they seemed serious. Anyway, we got our first harvest this spring. It was yum.

Not a huge harvest but I think we’re on our way. Probably won’t ever be enough to canĀ unless I grow more. That’s in the works but I’m not sure where I’ll put them…maybe in the old strawberry bed. šŸ™‚

If you read my previous posts, you know IĀ started more Asparagus from seeds that I harvested from my original planting. I repotted them into some giant pots that trees were probably originally potted in, and they’re doing good so far.

I’m new at growing asparagus because I didn’t used to love it. Ā Now I do love it as long as it’s tender.

The more I think about it, the ol’ strawberry bed might not be a badĀ idea!

    I never thought I'd like it, but it is delicious.
