I can’t wait! It’s been 4 years since I planted the asparagus and I hope I get enough to harvest this year. About 5 spears are already poking through the straw they hide under and that is just one of 4 plants.
Last year I read rhubarb is a good companion plant for asparagus so I got 2 that were already in gallon pots and transplanted them. I got lots of rhubarb last year because they were already 2 years old. They are now coming up like gangbusters. I have them covered with row cover on freezing nights but they seem fine with cold nights. Spring is here!
Nice! I just planted my ‘gus ‘n rhubarb bed this spring…. hope it turns out as well as yours! What varieties are they?
Hi Bob! My variety is not a red type. I believe it’s called Victoria. Green with a slight red blush on some of the stalks. Very big producer. What variety did you plant and what size container?
