Do you know how hard it is not to harvest the asparagus spears that are popping up?
I planted 30 or 32 (can’t remember) roots and I think 24 of them have come up and are growing. Almost every one of them have little asparagus shoots popping up. Can you see the little asparagus spear at the base of each plant? For the first year or two, I shouldn’t harvest anything but let it continue to grow and make the plant stronger. It’s so nice to see it growing so well. I sure hope I can keep my hands off it and hold off harvesting any of it til at least 2014. Ughhh . . that seems like forever from now!
