I have been upset about my asparagus for about a week and a half. I'm new to growing asparagus, so I'm not quite sure if I'm doing everything right. I finally have asparagus that I can harvest. The big heartbreak of this spring was that after three years of waiting, I thought that only about a third of my asparagus made it through the winter [and perhaps some inadequate watering on my part late last summer].
While about a third of my asparagus plants looked like this clump
the other two-thirds looked like this clump.
If I had only been patient, I wouldn't have worried. It took about a week and a half for some of the other clumps to emerge.

I live in historical neighborhood in Indianapolis. I have a small yard in which I have traditionally planted perennial flowers. I love to cook and I want to eat more locally grown organic produce, so I decided (GASP!!!!) to dig up a part of my flower garden to plant fruits and vegetables. In this blog, I will share what I'm learning along the way.
