When do people stop picking asparagus?
« on: May 26, 2020, 10:31 »
My bed is about 6-7 years old and very productive. In previous years I think Iíve stopped harvesting around now, but have read in some places of harvesting up to Mid June. What do others do? It would be nice to have something to harvest until the Hispi cabbage is ready in a couple of weeks.

Watched Monty the other day. He said asparagus can be picked until midsummer day with the years youíve had them ing ground.
One kid is handful. Two kids.... Example for chaos theory. Hats off to my mum who managed three...

Hello. I pick until the end of the first week in June - especially if there are still fat spears ;) If there are skinny ones from now on I donít bother with them... but the juicy, tender ones I wouldnít want to give up just yet!
