Last year, on a whim, I bought a pack of Asparagus seeds. And then I forgot about them.
A few weeks ago, on another whim, I stuck them in some soil in a 3 inch pot.
With ZERO expectations that they would even grow.
But today, I was moving all the windowsill plants around and making sure everything has had a good drink, and look at what I found:
There are at least 6 tiny little asparagus spears sticking out of the soil right now. It’s a little hard to take their picture with my iPhone camera.
Now I guess I should find a place to build an asparagus bed.
