Re: Harvesting Asparagus
Do you know how long it's been growing? I don't think you're supposed to harvest unless it's been in the ground for around 2yrs.
Anyway, harvest when it's about 6" tall, cut off the shoots with a sharp knife about 2cm below the surface of the soil. Asparagus can grow very quickly and in ideal conditions can grow abouy 6" in a day. You might be looking at harvesting daily for about 7-8 weeks, then stop. The remaining shoots will enable the asparagus plant to build up the roots.
