Notes from the Field: Asparagus

asparagus to seed

Once again the asparagus season has come to an end all too soon. The asparagus plants are still in the field growing, but we cannot harvest it any more. The crowns (the top of the asparagus) are going into seeding. The seeds from this crown will fall off and create more asparagus spears for the following years. An asparagus patch that is properly harvested can last up to 30 years. We hope that our patch will continue to produce beautiful asparagus for many more years to come.
