This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

asparagus seedlings

My newly sprouted asparagus seedlings look just like tiny asparagus.

Asparagus seedlings are so cute. I found them incredibly easy to start as well.

It’s the first time I’ve grown them from seed. I thought they would be hard to start for some reason. But, yes, they are incredibly easy to start. Now I just need to let them grow 3 years til I can harvest them. I suspect the waiting is the hard part.

I've never grown asparagus from seed - on purpose at least. However it does self-seed into the other garden areas, and I've used some of them to transplant and fill in those odd gaps where my original purchased plants didn't survive. I always feel bad when I pull them out of where they shouldn't be, and have no place needing fill-ins.

I forgot to mention - for me, the hardest part was keeping the new asparagus bed weeded, so I didn't yank them along with the weedy grasses or hoe them off :-(. That's the biggest reason I have had for new asparagus plants not surviving. Asparagus is tough, but there's only so many times they'll put up with being pulled up and replanted.
