Asparagus Recipes

Did you know you have to wait at least two years from planting to harvest asparagus? It’s true. The plant needs to use all of its energy establishing deep roots and even after that, it’s recommended not to harvest too many spears until the fourth year. Talk about food gratitude. It takes a whole lot of TLC to grow this nutrient dense vegetable that is synonymous with this time of year. A perennial vegetable, asparagus is rich in B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, and iron. Treat yourself to locally grown and freshly picked spears as they are far more tasty and tender than their store-bought counterparts.
