Just when I thought I'd heard every euphamism there is for reproductive acts! That's a good one. :slightly_smiling:
I started with just 12 crowns and I've added about 30 new crowns every year for the past 3 years so I'm right around 100 plants now. Seems like a lot to some folks, nothing to others (Phil) but its about right for me. I wanted to let everyone know that a great source for asparagus is Tractor Supply LATE SEASON. The several types and mostly in 2 brands. One brand has tiny little crowns and roots that I've had poor to mixed success with. HOWEVER, they sell another brand that is Organic, and they are very healthy, quite large crowns and roots that I've had 100% success with. The reason I'm telling you all this is that if you keep your eye out, then sometime in late May (here- may differ by area) Tractor supply will mark those organic crowns down from $8.99 for a package of 6 down to $1.50 per package!!! They've done it 4 years in a row here. Its an amazing deal. And even though its very late for the proper planting time of early spring, I've had all of them come up and establish themselves quite well. Sadly, they won't qualify as organic anymore but if that is your thing then you get the added bonus of them being organic. For the rest of us, its just an incredible price, very handy to pick up, and they make great spear tips.
