My Son's Asparagus

My son humored his crazy mother was kind enough to take a few pics of his asparagus as it grew and I thought you might like to see them... I find it fascinating that it comes out of the ground looking like this. Now, it's my understanding that it can take a few years for asparagus to get established and really start producing, his is only a couple years old and as of this moment he got... three spears. Yep, ~three~. But he did enjoy them:@)

Day one:

Day three:

Day five:
So as you can see, once it starts growing it pops up pretty quickly.
My fingers are crossed that it decides it's happy and becomes an over-achiever soon...
Roasted asparagus is a beautiful thing:@)

Have a happy day!


  1. I don't think I've ever seen asparagus growing either. Fun and oh so yummy!!

  2. Lynn, that is awesome! I have never seen asparagus growing either!!

  3. I'm another one that has never seen asparagus growing. My youngest son planted some, but I haven't heard any progress report on it. I hope your son's asparagus over achieves, too, and you get some of the bumper crop.

  4. had no idea how they grew, so thanks!

  5. How interesting. I love eating, but never saw it grow like this.

  6. I've never really thought about how asparagus grows, that is so crazy! I've always wondered why sometimes it's so fat and sometimes pencil thin! Funny photo!! I hope he gets a bumper crop next year!

  7. Lynn, I hope it multiplies quickly! Yum!

  8. I've never thought about how asparagus grows, either! So strange! I love roasted asparagus, it's one of my favs in the summer.

  9. It seems to be maturing faster than my darned rhubarb! Nice!

  10. Asparagus looks so funny and foreign rising up out of the ground like that :) Hope he has takes bumper crop!


Thank you for stopping by!
