I have been really excited about the asparagus and here is the first spear that emerged. I think that I am excited, because it represents how much more room I have to grow great food in my new veggie beds that I didn’t have before. Last summer when this whole plan was hatched, asparagus was one of those things that seemed like you wouldn’t grow unless you had enough space that you didn’t have to worry about space. Well, I still have to parcel it out carefully, but I was able to spare some room for my wife’s favorite vegetable.
