Asparagus update 1

I went home last weekend and checked on the asparagus.

They are doing really well. Some have already reached the top of the trough.

After I left last time, my mom decided to plant a couple extra crowns that we were going to throw away.

Those are doing better than some of the ones I planted.

One of the asparagus shoots already started branching. It's strange to see asparagus that way.

Anyway, it looks as though the asparagus is doing pretty well. Some of the crowns haven't sprouted shoots that have made it through the first few inches yet, and I'm a bit nervous about it, but I'm sure they'll be fine.
