Asparagus has peeked through the dirt and warmer weather is on the way!

        Asparagus is the most reliable indication that spring is on the way in the veggie world.  When the tips start to pop up through the dirt, you can be assured that warmer weather and spring is a soon to be happenin’ thing!

 

 

 

        Asparagus, rhubarb, and artichokes are the three common vegetables in North American eats that are perennial plants.

 

Once established, the harvest begins almost as soon as the plants emerge from dormancy each spring. When the ground defrosts, the massive underground root system pushes out the edible spears at a rate of 6 inches or more each day.

 

Asparagus is to be stored tightly wrapped in a refrigerator for a day or so.  If asparagus is to be stored for longer than that, the process to store it is identical to cut flower.  Put the bases in a bowl water with the tops loosely covered with a plastic bag.
