When asparagus grows up

August 10th, 2010


  1. MN Roxanne says:

    I love asparagus but this has gone to seed…. making more for next year!!

  2. Jeff says:

    hmmm…need some shrimp, and garlic.

  3. Gigi says:

    The soil looks dry.

  4. Candice in Alabama says:

    My Mom had some asparagus growing in her side yard, way long ago. It was good to eat and reseeded every year.

  5. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    Is this really asparagus? No wonder it’s so expensive at the store. It grows one piece at a time. I had no idea that’s how it grows. Learn something new everyday. I love this place. I’m gonna miss the education for sure.

  6. Roe says:

    Not a fan, but do grow it, that is how it re-seeds itself! Yea, Roxanne, you are #1.

  7. Craig E (Pennsylvania) says:

    Funny, I’ve always thought that when cultivating asparagus one did NOT want it to ‘re-seed’, but as a perrenial to send up shoots year after year (when treated right and kept well nourished). “Jersey Giant” being an all-MALE variety does not set seed…
