This is my asparagus. I know it is too close together, but I was tired of digging and I just needed to get it out of the pot. There were about 7, and it was a spring leftover at the garden center I'm sure. I figured I'd go for it just as an experiment, and lo and behold it is thriving! In fall, I'll continue the trench (heaviliy enriched with compost, with plastic weed block embedded around it) and give it some space. In a couple years, maybe we'll get a nice harvest. I love the way the feathery leaves look in the meantime.
I found this really lovely Garden Rant post that begins with asparagus but is really about gardening or anything you might procrastinate or hold back on.
