Asparagus Worries

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.


  1. Yeah! So glad you didn't lose your other crowns!

  2. Thanks! Me, too. I would hate to see three years of work go to waste.
