Preparing the Asparagus Beds for Winter

To stay organized during seasonal transitions here at my Bedford, New York farm we always follow a schedule of tasks from one year to the next.

My outdoor grounds crew has been especially busy moving plants, blowing leaves, storing outdoor furniture and mulching various areas of the garden. The recent weather has allowed us ample time to complete many of our outdoor tasks in preparation for winter. Yesterday, my gardeners tended the asparagus plants. Once established, asparagus is a relatively low-maintenance crop, but there are a few key practices to remember when putting asparagus to bed.

Here are some tips and photos - enjoy.
