Last summer, another gardener friend mentioned to us that they were eating fresh asparagus in September. We had a cool summer so I thought it was possible. When I commented my surprise that his asparagus was still going, he told us that he lets it bolt in late June or early July and then cuts it all back in the beginning of August for a second crop. This year we decided to give it a try, and what do you know, it worked! I picked this handful of fresh spears this afternoon:
I'm also picking the second crop of green beans and I have a bucket of ripe tomatoes collecting in my fridge. I think I see tomato soup in my near future!
