My Asparagus

I ‘googled’ Asparagus to find any information about how to grow it.  I was surprised to read that once Asparagus reaches 3 years old, each spear can grow 6” per day and needs cutting daily!  ‘That can’t be right’ I thought, came off my computer and ignored that advice.

I had a friend visit for a coffee the other day, whilst showing her around the garden, I lifted the cover to show her my tiny asparagus and to my utter shock found the 3” spears were now a towering 12” and looking very spindly!  Maybe they do grow that fast!!

So I had better find one of those asparagus cutters now and start to take this plant a little more serious.  I really will be having asparagus and pancetta grilled on my barbeque on the long summer evenings.
