Remember back on March 12th, when I placed 20 asparagus crowns into a newly-dug bed in our back yard? I've been fretting and watering all this time, and this morning, lo and behold, three of the crowns are sprouting. The magic worked!
Here's the largest - about 3 inches:
In other gardening news, the bok choys are doing well, as are the onions. Out of the first planting of (old) pea seeds, only 7 sprouted. I re-planted with newer seeds the other day.
I think I'll be harvesting the first rhubarb in a couple of days.
None of the lettuces, chard, cilantro, chives, or catnip came up, which is disappointing. I must have done something wrong.
