Asparagus 'sprout' time
I decided to add asparagus to my urban homestead this year. I bought 25 crowns from Walker Brother farms and spoke with the owner about how to plant it. I followed his printed instructions pretty much to a "T" (6 inch v-shaped trench, cover only with 3" of soil, etc). I planted the crowns on May 26 of this year. When will I see signs of life? I tried google-ing this, but there are no good answers. The word time just brings up the fact that you can't harvest for 3 years. But when should I see something break through the soil?
We've had cool nights lately, dipping down into the upper 40s. I know that will slow the growth of asparagus. I just want to make sure that I did everything correct and that the crop is actually growing.
Thanks in advance. (I also tried searching the forums here to see if this question has already been answered, but I'm having problems navigating the sight. I'm new here, so it may just take me some time to figure everything out. Please excuse me if this is a double, triple, or 15th-time post.)
