If I'm not mistaken, I got my asparagus starter plants from Triangle John three years ago. Well, here it is three years later and, after peering at the soil all month and finally giving up, I saw some spears sticking out of the ground today! It's like they popped out of the ground like a jack-in-the-box. I just harvested them, roasted them for a few minutes with some veggie oil, garlic, and salt & pepper, and had the most scrumptious dinner!
Thank you, Triangle John! What a thrill!
