    I still should get more asparagus pics because abt 2/3 of what I planted is showing pretty well. Some look like skinny, tall weeds I would probably pull out if I didn't know the difference. I guess it eventually thickens up so you can cut trimmings off to eat. I was told, once it's established, to harvest til 4th of July and then let it grow back out or reseed. Mine is a hybrid, so it won't seed out anyway.

    They start to get a bit bigger in the second year in the ground. I don't cut the spears but rather just bend them and they snap off pretty easy. We harvest as soon as they start growing in the spring and usually let them rest about mid July. I took the weed eater to the growth last week so we can weed the bed.

    Just did 12 hours. Going in 4 hours early is definitely easier than staying 4 hours late, but that's what being drafted entails. Now I have to go in an hour early for a food safety meeting. Woohoo!

    Most of my asparagus is up.

    I spaced them abt 18", but I have a few spaces that haven't popped up yet. I'm still hoping though.

    Looks like it will be a couple of years before you can pick, at least that area. Asparagus require some patience.

    Plant MORE! I planted some when we moved here almost 5 years ago. They finally got a decent size last spring. I snapped them off and we ate them raw, right out of the garden. Just not enough of them.
