Asparagus in Fall

Every wonder what asparagus looks like 5 months after its was edible? Asparagus is a perennial plant. We eat the shoots in the beginning of the season. If you let some shoots mature, the plant grows larger and stronger and you reap the rewards the following year. This is what asparagus grows into. Notice the red seeds.





Behind the asparagus are my Pablano peppers. Still kicking October 6th.
