This spring I planted some asparagus! It’s another one of those vegetables that you don’t get to eat the year it is planted. But I’m willing to wait. I planted two different kinds (a purple and green) and figured I’d just let them take over the bed and have many happy years of asparagus harvesting. Surprisingly most of the purple asparagus came up but only about 2 of the green ones grew. I’m not sure why. I may have gotten a bad batch or maybe they will surprise me next year (which I doubt.) I figure the ones that are growing this year will spread out and take over the empty areas in years to come so it’s ok.
