My Asparagus :)
I am so excited about my asparagus-I just wanted to share it with you all. I succeded in sprouting 19 of 20 seeds!! I used the paper towel method in a cooler with an incandecent lamp to get 70+ degrees. I had never done that before and was doubtful I would get results, but it worked! I planted them in 3 inch pots and so far, all but 2 have pushed through the soil. I moved them under lights and they are growing nicely. They are each a single (very) spindley stem. Most are still very tiny, but some are growing straight and starting to make little hairy branches.
The spindleyness worries me somewhat. I've never seen little asparagus before. Are they supposed to be pale green and spindley? Or do I need to do something to rectify that? Any advice would be great.
Thank you for letting me glow a little bit :) Gardening is so much fun!!
