Growing Asparagus in Maine
March 21 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Learn everything you need to know about planting, growing, harvesting and maintaining a bed of asparagus in your own garden in a free program at 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 21, at Belfast Free Library.
The Belfast Garden Club invites everyone to come hear organic farmer Lee Graham give the ins and outs of growing this delicious vegetable. Asparagus is a perennial, giving it a huge advantage for those who tire of replanting their entire vegetable garden each year.
Graham, instilled with a love of gardening by her grandparents, has been growing organically since the 1970s. She and her husband spend their winters in Belfast and their summers on their 72-acre organic farm in Woodstock, Maine, raising not only asparagus, which they market, but also apples, berries, grapes, flowers, and a wide variety of vegetables. They are particularly proud of their restored apple orchard, which they have under-planted with 5,000 daffodils.
The public is always welcome at Belfast Garden Club programs. For more information, visit BelfastGardenClub.org or call club president Corliss Davis at 930-3562
