Asparagus

One of our specialties, asparagus is a spring and early summer crop. The asparagus plant roots store energy and nutrients throughout the winter until spring, when they send up their spears. We harvest them by hand, using specialized tools and bunch and pack them all by hand. Our asparagus is irrigated with buried drip. Did you know that the same field of asparagus, (after the initial 3 years needed to establish it before harvesting), can regenerate and grow back several years in a row? One of our fields is 8 years old and still sending up spears like a young'n.
