It was decided to allow the asparagus plants to mature and produce roots for next year’s harvest.The patch is quite attractive, when the shoots flare out into a beautiful fern like plant.The area was weeded and heavily mulched with wood chips. In the Fall the mulch will be raked back and a layer of compost added and the mulch re-applied.

A few shoots were cut today. The shoots are never uniform in size,and the shoots are cut when of appropriate size.

Only one plant has produced shoots so far. This is about a month earlier than last year. I ate the one shoot raw. It sure has a nice juicy flavour. This is Guelph Millennium. There are ten plants and this is the fifth year, since the bed was planted.
