Picked my first round today about 10 spears lots more poking through
Having a great year with the asparagus patch. However, having a terrible time with asparagus beetles. Never have had them before and no idea where they came from. I've been picking them off as I cut the stalks. Only able to get a third of them at best this way. Very small and very quick to jump off and hide in the ground. Can't wait to be done harvesting and give those little devils what they have coming!
Stalks are getting tall! Movin fast
I put leftover salt from the winter on the Asparagus patch as soon as things start to green up in the spring.
I somehow managed to forget about my asparagus until I went to plant my garden yesterday. Some of it was 3'+ high already. Whoops....
Just pick a few lbs!!! Man my pee is gonna be funky for the next week!
As for weed control, I've been told a layer of straw in the fall. Any thoughts? May also help with less frost penetration.
