Asparagus is an amazing crop. It is the only crop that we must harvest every day of the week because if we skip a day it will grow too tall. It is a particular crop, needing ideal growing conditions of temperatures between 65- 85 degrees to encourage growth. Asparagus is available from Full Belly Farm from March to May, though the season can fluctuate with the changing spring temperatures. You can learn more about how we grow and harvest asparagus here or here.

Be sure to store your asparagus in the refrigerator. If you have the space, put it in a container with a bit of water (like flowers) and cover with a bag. Otherwise, keep in a bag in your high humidity drawer and you can reinvigorate wilted spears by trimming the bottom 1/2 inch of the stalk and placing the ends in tepid water.
