Yesterday I walked to the asparagus patch to check on my wild asparagus. The patch is a little walk away from the house and sometimes I forget about it.
My wild asparagus grows so very fast. In about a week an asparagus stalk grows tall and goes to seed before I realize it. The above picture shows asparagus that has already gone to seed. The right picture shows asparagus that is ready for picking. I cut it off at ground level. New stalks grow from the roots.
Here's a little skinny asparagus!
Here's a really tall asparagus that has gone to seed already.
