Gardening: Asparagus

Asparagus is productive for 10 years, so it meets my reproductive gardening. However, growing aspragus can be very time consuming if you start from seeds. It takes two to three years for seeds to grow to produce nice stems.  So, I started from roots this year.

First stem show up on 2/20/2017

If we grow under light, stems will be green, so called green asparagus. Without light, stems will be white, so they will be white asparagus.

Since this is very slow progress, I will just enjoy watching it every month. Some stems are expected to grow up in Spring.
