It's ON
« on: May 14, 2018, 06:58:56 PM »
First when a few plants sprouted I kept up and ate asparagus every other evening,Then it was every night. When Bobber came out I was happy to give he an his wife a small bag (it was all that was sprouted last Fri Morn) Then I saw multiple plants erupting, bout 18 out of 22?24? plants.This morn after returning from Willmar I asked the ole girl to pick it, started raining So I just picked and am washing.Gonna freeze this batch and from now till July about every other or each 3ed day I will be picking this much each time. Probably over whelm me but I have other seeds by the Asparagus I need to see at least sprout befor I will let the spargus rejuvenate itself an go wild.Heres a pic this aint floating its all asparagus in the sink!! If yer near and stop before its picked you can have that days pickins.

  i just wash it, let it dry stick it in a plastic bag and throw it in the freezer. don't blanche it. its always used up by time the next stuffis ready. i prefer it raw or pickled.
