Asparagus is one of the first things to harvest in the spring.
I don't know. You should ask around locally and see if anyone grows it in your area. We sometimes get - 30 degree temps too, but not every year. The snow helps to insulate the ground, but where the ground is bare the cold sure goes down.Anyway do you think I could grow asparagus in zone 4b?
Steam it.Asparagus taste great; how do you plan on cooking yours?
Those three stalks that came up are what you should eat. Harvest them when they are 8 to 10 inches tall. Cut them off at ground level. No, I would not pull them out. Cut it to the ground now and they will send up some more tender shoots for you to eat. You can harvest all the shoots that come up in the spring up until about mid June. Then about mid June let it grow up tall. Give it some fertilizer and mulch in the fall.Ours has been in the ground for 3 years and still nothing, we got maybe three stalks that came up this year. Whats your secret! should we pull them and start over? What type of plants? we live in N. CO Any tips would be great.
I have never given it a thought to grow white asparagus.Where you live and garden, would it work to cover your asparagus beds with black plastic real early in the spring and then harvest white asparagus until the weather warms and the plants need to grow?
