Also, use gloves and don't breathe the fine dust when working with those berries. Dried or not, you should limit exposure. And for sure don't eat any part of the plant other than the young spikes.
Nice. You can find them here in the stores (for a hefty price) but no one i know is growing them at this time. Do you prefer the collosal or Precoce?

just going by what I've read about berries, the toxicity may be overrated?
Quote:
Asparagus is a poisonous plant!
But don’t worry; it’s not the asparagus itself; only the red berries of the asparagus leaves are slightly toxic.
The berries contain several furostanol and spirostanol glycosides and the seeds the chemically not examined bitter substance spargine. Sulfur compounds have been detected in the shoot parts, which are considered partly responsible for the sometimes occurring skin reactions.
After the intake of larger amounts (more than 5-7) of the ripe berries, people have been diagnosed with vomiting and abdominal pain. After the peeling of asparagus or getting in contact with the plant, predisposed people may suffer from allergic reactions and an inflammation of skin, eyes, and allergic rhinitis. Some asthmatic attacks are recorded.
After the eating of smaller amounts of these berries, people should drink sufficient water or tee. When more than 7 berries have been eaten, one may consider administering charcoal tablets. Primary removal of toxins is recommended only after the intake of much larger amounts.

To be honest I never harvested the strains one by one, I always go and take what's ready and mix them. By sight alone I would say CC has more thicker stems and looks a bit better with more purple tint on it.
As about the berries, i said it can't be that dangerous at first, but I found out I can feel them burn my skin when handling (after a while) and thats enaugh for me to start wearing gloves, avoid cross contamination of stuff around me and breathing the dust. I may have some kind of sensitivity, but since they are known to be toxic it can't hurt for you or everyone handling those berries to wear some gloves.

Got a pic of yours? Wasn't raining too hard a few minutes ago so went out and took another pic. The purple color is amazing on the aptly named Purple Passion in the second pic., don't you think? The Jersey giants are ready to be considered food and tonight just might be the night.



I agree on the berries for folks to err on the side of caution especially those with sensitive skin allergies.

would love to see the colors of your asparagus bed and thanks for the discussion
off topic -

one thing I noticed is my posts are always double spaced

why is that? is there something I can change on the control panel?
if I don't go back and edit, it looks like this text below the pics


TIA

The vegetable garden always gets just as much attention if not more than the ganga and just as rewarding. Feel free to show off your edibles here.

EDIT: Thanks for all the positive vibes from everyone who has visited and contributed to this thread! Starting this thread I was going to keep it to just the vegetable gardening, but ended up including fruits, animals & even the bounty from a fishing trip! So I encourage people to share their ideas and experiences. As long as it is earthy and fun, please share it! Here are pictures of 2012 gardens. 2013 gardens start kicking off good on page 13. Thanks for joining in, and have fun!!!

Beautiful garden !!

Spring Garden Begins

Couple of rows of tomatoes. Left to right - Rutgers, Cherry and Beefsteak. Germed from seeds back in January and raised along with the ladies until transplant about three weeks ago:


Some Silver Queen Corn interspersed with Blue Lake green beans planted about two weeks ago:

Just planted another two rows yesterday.

Peace,
starke
