The asparagus is doing great even though it has been dry. The male plants are putting out seed pods. I collect these after they are dried & red to plant for next year! I have had great luck starting it from seed. I don't cut anything off them for a couple of years but am enlarging my bed every year!
Here is a picture of them green. They will turn bright red when they are ready to harvest.
Isaiah 46:4 Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He, I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
