For years I had wanted to put in an asparagus bed, but all the guidelines for planting one (dig trench like this, mound bottom like this, spread roots JUST like this, this distance, that depth.....yada, yada, yada....) just didn't seem worth the "risk" of success.....Then I remembered Ruth Stout's "NO- WORK GARDEN BOOK" philosophy ........went for it (like a neanderthal gardener) and this is what happened. Apparently, the roots that I planted had never read "The way to plant an asparagus bed".

David, from the picture it looks like your asparagus is doing great but you waited way too long to harvest. Now just let it go to seed and you will probably have an award winning crop next spring.

I have an asparagas bed about half that size and I believe that this year I will be able to enjoy eating them. My husband hates them so they're all mine, all mine!

I have 8 more seedlongs to add because I saved tne seeds from last year and started them in January.

Enjoy !

Thanks......it's been hard waiting for the third year growth to start harvesting, for sure....but it's FINALLY coming around the bend.
