First Peek

It has been a week since the asparagus were put in the ground.  I'm amazed at the growth.


The spears are not harvested the first year after planting the year-old crowns.  According to eHow, the spears need to fern out for the roots to grow stronger.  


Artichokes are said to be easy to grow.  This one had no leaves when planted last Sunday, February 20.
I gave it a growth boost with Miracle-Gro time release fertilizer.

Until next time, God bless.
