Kind of Looks Like Squid


I bet you’re wondering what the heck this is. The answer: Asparagus crowns! I got these in the ground today. No one get too excited: Even if they do well, the absolute earliest time to harvest will be next spring. (Recommendations vary.)

The specific variety is ‘Jersey Supreme.’ Here’s a somewhat more attractive picture of the crowns, which came in the mail this week. You can also start these plants from seed, but I’m impatient, so I decided to start with one-year old crowns, which means we should be able to harvest asparagus that much sooner.

  1. Interesting to see what they look like…I’ve just been planting dahlias today, they too look like something from a bad sci-fi movie! Hope they grow well for you…

  2. Nice. That makes me want to plant dahlias.
