2nd year asparagus
This is asparagus that I planted last year; it was rather wispy and didn't grow much. This picture is the new growth that started in the greenhouse about a month ago. I had to put my hand behind it so my camera could even pick it up in the picture; it's so thin. Apparently I should be able to harvest and eat it starting year three. I sure hope it does some serious broadening between now and then. I think I better do some research.
Went to the garden store on my way home today and got my onion sets, garlic (that can be harvested in the fall), jerusalem artichokes and organic chive and lettuce seeds to plant asap. As soon as some shoots hit the daylight, I'll add some pictures.
