My first homegrown asparagus!

So here’s the first guy of the season! My first year harvesting since buying the little plants a few years ago. I snapped this one off about 8 inches tall. They grow pretty quickly and once they’re ferning out they are beyond eating I believe.

These ones are just little guys. Hopefully I will get some more as spring rolls around 🙂

    Started growing asparagus in pots recently myself. Stumbled across your blog while looking for… Well, to see I wasn’t alone!
    Happy growing!
    Also, other than your blog, do you keep a garden journal at all?

      Good luck with your asparagus. I just ate my second pencil sized asparagus today 🙂 No journal. I tried, but the blog works out better as I can post pics easily.
