Asparagus is a popular vegetable crop that can be successfully grown in Ohio gardens. A desirable aspect of asparagus culture is that annual planting is not required because once the crop is fully establishes (3 yrs), it can be productive for 12-15 year or more!
We carry Jersey Giant and Mary Washington.
Growing onions from small sets is the easiest way to grow onions. They can handle the early cool spring weather and will begin setting out roots fairly quickly. Onion sets tend to have a higher success rate than direct sowing onion seeds or transplants. We typically carry red, white, and yellow onion sets.

Plant in full sun with soil rich in organic matter. Space plants 5-6' apart. Some varieties are thornless while others do have thorns. Harvest fruit from June to August depending on variety. 2nd year canes produce the fruit, so they should be pruned to the ground after the fruit harvest.
The varieties we typically carry are self-fruitful - no other variety needed for cross pollination. Plant in full sun with soil that is deeply cultivated, well-drained and loose (no heavy clay). Good air circulation helps control disease issues. Provide a sturdy trellis or arbor for the vines to grow on and allow the fruit clusters to hang freely to ripen.
Plant in full sun, in rich well-drained soil, 2-3' apart. Raspberries are perennial, but their canes will only last one season. Trim out the old canes after they are finished bearing fruit. Fruit is typically ripe in June, with some varieties ripening later. Provide a trellis or support to prevent canes from getting damaged or out of control.
Strawberries are either June-bearing (one crop per season) or everbearing, with fruit periodically all summer. Plant in full sun in organically rich soil. Strawberries don't like to be planted too deep. The crown (where foliage and roots meet) should be right at soil level. Set plants 12-18" apart and rows 4' apart.
