Care of Fresh Asparagus

Asparagus storage tips:

Wrap in a damp cloth and store in the hydrator drawer of the refrigerator.  An alternate storage technique to retain vitality is to bundle spears with a rubber band and place upright in a container with an inch of water.
Refrigerate immediately and use as soon as possible.  Asparagus’ sugars will turn rapidly to starches, reducing flavor quickly.

  1. What hours are you open? I drove out on Saturday may 29th for asparagus and didn’t see anyone around. I also want to get blueberries when they are ready but I need days and times when to come
