First Vegetable - Asparagus

We have had some teetering weather here lately.  Some days warm, some cold, too cold for me, but, one sure sign that the weather is changing is this:

My first asparagus stalk has come out.  This was April 14th and now there are several more coming out. 

At first when I planted them I thought I may have sentenced them to doom.  I didn't plant them deep enough.  So I piled on some dirt and then some wood chips once I cut the ferns down.   Looks like all is well, thankfully.     I can't wait until I have enough for dinner!

Next post is a video of the garden so far.......stay tuned!
