#1776 Stalking the Garden Asparagus



Two years ago we started an asparagus bed in our garden.  After the first year of planting asparagus crowns we couldn't  harvest asparagus in order to allow them to be fully well rooted.  This year was the year that we would have our asparagus.. but this year we noticed that our bed was not producing as much asparagus as we wished.  So we didn't harvest.. again.  We did take one asparagus and allowed us each a bite.  Let's hope next year.  

Don't want to try your own asparagus in your garden?  Maybe you are lucky enough to forage some wild ones?  A great classic read on foraging is Stalking the Wild Asparagus by Euell Gibbons  http://www.amazon.com/Stalking-Wild-Asparagus-Euell-Gibbons/dp/0911469036
