Asparagus first harvest

Asparagus first harvest

At the top of the page you can see my lovely wife Michelle bundling our fresh from the field Asparagus. I asked her to smile for the camera and she insisted on displaying just one of the spears?

Right next to where the gang was planting onions I spotted our Asparagus. They told me the other day it was ready to cut. You need to stay after it and not let it go to seed if you want to keep it going. It takes Asparagus a few years to really get going and this is it’s second year in the ground and our first harvest.

Did you know that has been cultivated for thousands of years and it was first domesticated by the Macedonians about 200 B.C. Check out the following link to learn more than you ever wanted to know about it.

Todd our wine maker cut some fresh this morning and we are serving it as a special in the winery this weekend. And NO we are not going to make an Asparagus wine!
