Hey rod, was that no name pepper from seeds taken from a pepper you grew? Chilies hybridize quite easily, kind of looks like it has some habanero or Caribbean red in it.

My chocolate habaneros are up, surprisingly they beat the cayennes.

hey betterhaff , i got the seeds from a mate years ago and they have been consistent since . no variations at all . i grew one plant that lasted four years and got to head height .
i can eat a whole one though every now and then you'll get one that scorches your mouth , live your own little private hell for a while ! hahaha .

I thought I lost these pics from last year



thin wispy little spears on 2nd year old root
Bigger than my index finger this year





cat loves the sun as much as the asparagus




The five gal bucket has been up-canned to a tote over the winter
Had to put sticks everywhere to discourage squatters


and a couple broccoli pics

asparagus is pretty easy to grow, haven't done it in pots yet but as long as it doesn't freeezes in winter should be ok. give it nutes once the foliage starts to grow after harvest. it will help with next years harvest. also harvest every time a spike is about 20 cm long, no matter what thickness (the thin ones are even nicer taste than the big ones, they are so good you can eat them fresh on the spot, as they are very sweet when harvested.). harvest for 2-3 weeks at most when plants are in year 3-4, or just till all the spikes that break ground are thin. once the plant is estabilished you can harvest for over 1 month most of the time, or till the spikes are all thin.

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.
