Remove old growth from asparagus plants now and fertilize as well, he says. Follow the instructions from a soil test or add 1 to 2 pounds of a 10-20-10 fertilizer per 20 feet before growth starts, Upham says. Fertilize at the same rate after the last harvest, he says.
There also will be special events on each of the Saturdays. This Saturday, there will be a Tiny Tea – children’s tea with mini-cupcakes – from 11 a.m to 1 p.m. and voting for the name of the new mascot.
