Reviews

After planting, a couple small stalks poked through the soil. After a couple months, I am realizing my folly of ordering so many. Most of the roots have numerous (read 4-8) stalks springing from the ground! I planted 60 to feed my fiancé and me. We might be feeding much of my street. Initially the stalks were barely a twig, 1/8" in diameter. After establishing themselves, I am half tempted to pick these later stems as they are the width of my finger or more! This seems like a heavy producer and I am excited to see what I will be harvesting in the years to come.

We decided to add asparagus to our farms offerings. The roots arrived healthy and ready to plant. We are looking forward to a great production and are planning to add a few thousand more! THANK YOU Nourse Farms!!
