Third Year for Asparagus!

After three patient years of waiting, the little asparagus patch looks like it will give us a harvest this year! The spears are coming up plumper than ever, and in more multiples than ever. I always hear people with established asparagus plants begin to bemoan the fact that there is so much they don't know what to do with it. I can't wait until that happens to us!
Hey there,  asparagus!

Pushing up and out. I need to clean up the beds still, but the constant rain has made that nearly impossible!

I need to weed everything, as well, but all of the spears of asparagus have me rather happy! Each crown has sent up at least three so far! Hopefully Sunday I can really tackle some chores...and maybe harvest a few spears!
