Okay, removed a good portion of my mulch, found that I do indeed have asparagus growing,very white.believe this is due to it being covered,I do see white asparagus in stores.
The spears are bigger than a #2 pencil,(some not all) about 3 pencils in size of them in size.Not all crowns are sprouting yet, But once we get another warm spell I'm sure more will sprout.I planted 40 crowns last spring.
Question, being as it is 2nd year how many of these can I pick or should I just leave them be for the 3rd year Then begin to pick??.. Do I harvest them all or just pick those that are #2 pencil size and leave the small ones to fern up?
Very interesting crop asparagus is. Doesn't seem like there is a lot to do to grow it.
