Worthington Farmers Market: April 11th

“This magical, marvelous food on our plate, this sustenance we absorb, has a story to tell. It has a journey. It leaves a footprint. It leaves a legacy. To eat with reckless abandon, without conscience, without knowledge; folks, this ain’t normal.”

- Joel Salatin, farmer and author of Folks, This Ain’t Normal; You Can Farm

Let's Grow Some Asparagus!

"Done right, planting a bed of asparagus is a once-in-a-generation affair. Other than artichokes, capers and rhubarb, asparagus is the only perennial vegetable regularly featured in North American cuisine — it will send up those slender, succulent stalks each spring for decades if it is given a happy home. Early spring, before its roots awaken from dormancy, is the traditional planting time." (Brian Barth, Modern Farmer)

How to Plant Asparagus:

Step 1 - Procure the crowns
Step 2 - Prepare the soil
Step 3 - Plant
Step 4 - Continue filling and watering

Now, there's more to planting asparagus than just these simple steps! For more detailed information on how to plant asparagus, check out the article by Brian Barth for Modern Farmer!
