Asparagus Now!

Why now and not a month ago?  Or a month hence?

It was too cold a month ago.  The soil around the asparagus plant’s crown was too cold. The crown is the underground base of the stem from whence the roots go down and the shoots go up.  As the soil warmed up, the crown awoke and sent up shoots.  That’s the part we eat – the shoots.  And they shoot out of the ground pretty fast.  Look at this time lapse video of how fast they grow on a hot day…


This is what the plant looks like if the shoots are not picked…

Why can’t we keep picking the shoots all summer?  The crown has only so many shoots it can send up.  When they’re done, they’re done.  If all the shoots are picked there is no mature plant to feed the crown.  So the last shoots are always left to grow into the full plant which nurtures the crown for next year’s crop.

When frost hits the plant in the fall, the part above ground dies, but the crown goes dormant until the soil warms again in the spring.
