Asparagus patch cleared for 2012

My asparagus patch is shown here. It lives on the West side of my garage, and is about 18 feet long. Until recently, it contained the bushy, dry remnants of last fall’s first year growth. This is the second spring for these plants, so I will not be harvesting anything this year either. I’ll let the spears that grow go directly into their bushy stage in order to strengthen the roots for another year. Asparagus can be harvested carefully in it’s 3rd year.
