Friday 2nd May 2014 – My Asparagus is finally in.

I sowed some Asparagus seeds last year in a pot in the greenhouse, with the intention of transplanting them when they were big enough. However, other jobs at the allotment took over, and I never got round to it. I left the pots of asparagus in the greenhouse, and didn’t give them any attention at all. I thought that I’d killed them, but some how they were still alive. When I went in the greenhouse at the beginning of the spring this year, I looked at them, removed their brown tops and there looking at me were some new shoots! So today I planted them out in the allotment. They have a lovely bed, full of manure and leaves, so hopefully they’ll forget that I abandoned them. I won’t get any spears until next year as they need time to settle, but hopefully they’ll grow well, and I can harvest some in the near future. We love asparagus at home. I roast it in the oven, and sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top. Mark reckons it make his wee smell, but I’ll take his word on that.

    Hi Claire, this post and you tube video inspired me to sow some asparagus seed. I’ve just been in the green house (end Feb) to see new shoots starting. I just wondered how your’s got on last year?
    Regards Heather
