Asparagus Planting (delayed entry, planted 2 14 08)

These were the asparagus starts that I planted 2 14 08. Other people eat chocolate or send cards with red hearts. I plant asparagus.

See today's entry below for how it looks now. Sprouts are 1 to 4 inches tall today.

These starts are bigger and plumper than I tried last year. They are mail order from

This time they were soaked in water. Soaking time was about 2 hours.

They were planted in a trench. I covered them with a couple of inches of soil, wtihout filling in the trench completely. This is closer to the 'traditional' method, so hopefully I did it right this time.
