I love asparagus.
This spring has been a real learning experience because I had no idea what to do or how to care for it or anything. Luckily it seems to be pretty fool proof since it is an established bed.
I did some reading in books and on the internet. Looks like I have a good amount of new roots spreading so I have stuff that I was cutting at first that really should have been left alone to grow this year. They are very small stalks. I caught on after a few weeks and now leave those to grow so they will be bigger next year.
For 4 weeks now I have been cutting asparagus daily. Its awesome. But I am getting a little tired of eating it so I am now trying other things.
This is a Pinterest pin for Spicy pickled asparagus which can be found here.
I made a jar but I have not tried them yet. Like I said...I'm a little tired....
Right now sitting on the counter are:
I have two bare spots in the bed so I am thinking of getting two new root sets to plant in them. I know you cant eat them the first year (like my little sprouts) but I have plenty I can eat. I'm not sure how long the plants produce for (as in years) so I think it might be a good idea to add more. Anyone know?
Unfortunately the artichoke plants did not survive the winter so no new learning on that front. Not sure if I will buy more plants or not. Not this year anyways.
So do you have a favorite asparagus recipe? I could use some new ones. Please share!
