RE: New Life And Regrowth (Homestead Photography Contest #17)

We are starting to get over run by asparagus on our homestead. We will probably have to start canning our soon and it will get us back into the swing of things for fall when the peaches come in. Hopefully, they won't all get eaten this time. haha! Great Job!

Wow, overrun, what's the size of your asparagus patch?? I imagine we'll need at least 3 years more of continued planting of new asparagus from seed to even get to a point where it's starting to be enough!

How do you can it, do you have a tried and true recipe?

Our patches are several years old and we started with asparagus sets that we planted. The patch consists of several rows about 50-70' long. It takes a little while, but eventually you will have it coming out of your ears!

We use a pressure canner to store most of the asparagus that we do not eat. Otherwise, we like to cook it in a skillet with some lemon juice drizzled on it as its cooking. We probably eat most of our asparagus this a way and really enjoy it.
