In 2010, the first year of this blog, my asparagus started sprouting in the last week of September. I looked back in my gardening diary that goes back over 25 years and couldn’t find an asparagus pick earlier than September. In 2011, it was mid-September. In 2012, we were eating asparagus by late August. In 2014 it was mid August.
This year, well, here it is not even the last week in July yet and here we are, eating asparagus.
