You aren’t supposed to harvest asparagus the first year that it grows so I’ve been patient and let it do it’s thing in the hopes that it gives me a ton of yummy asparagus next year. I’m pretty sure it will since it’s turned into a jungle this summer! It is now officially the cats’ favorite place to hide. And frankly if you are standing right next to it you can’t see them in there. I can’t wait to harvest some next year. Every so often I see a new shoot growing and I get really excited!
