Thanks exploziv appreciate the help! Spikes/spears are just over 15 cm as of today. Nearly triple in size in a couple days!
I dodged a few raindrops and took a pic
Clumsy oaf that I am broke a spear off while moving the mulch around.... so I ate it right then. It was good and sweeet just like you say.
My concern is over harvesting and hurting next years growth so I will heed your advice at only doing a 2 to 3 week harvest this year at most.
I believe the females are the thinner ones? I have some red berry like seeds from one female plant and will try to propagate them later this year. We purchased these year old roots but if i can get a perpetual harvest of first year roots, I would be even happier.
It is my understanding that asparagus in containers have a 5 to 7 year life span while double that in the ground.
anything else you or anyone else can correct or add to about asparagus container growing , please chime in.
