Introduction: My Garden: Asparagus

About: Im a high school student in video design classes, I like to hang out with my friends, build websites and make movies. life is short so make it fun

Truth is growing asparagus wasn't even close in my list of "things to grow this spring/summer" but I went with it when I saw them at the garden section in Walmart in clearance for just a buck (for 5 roots) (1 dollar). I thought, why not just try? its just a buck. I didn't have a lot of dirt left from the other plants I was growing, so I decided to make a small trench and fill it with dirt and plant them there. The first few weeks weren't as great as I would've hoped (mid-April) and I was already a few months behind (In dallas, supposed to plant near jan/feb). The rain/hail didnt do as much damage as I expected and 1 plant started growing very fast (2 inches a day) with the sunny week we had (im guessing). It kept growing and growing, I stopped really paying attention when It got many little branches. Last week I checked it and to my surprise another plant appeared next to the first. I forgot to mention I used miracle gro (the blue powder) on the plants every week. The first plant has started with a lot of flowers and i thought it was a female but you cant be sure since both (male and female) plants have flowers, but the female ones turn into berries in about a month. Thats about it for my asparagus plants... for now...
