Anyone growing asparagus on MI?

by Cliff Sharples (chief cultivator)

I'm thinking about asparagus this year, but didn't know if I should start the seeds indoors or sow directly in the ground? Anyone have experience with this one?

I am waiting 25 asparagus crowns from Territorial Seed, where I&#x27;ve been buying seeds and plants for the last 4 years with great success. The asparagus should arrive any day now. <br/>I&#x27;ve never planted it before, but have done a lot of research. I&#x27;ve dug up the bed to a depth of 18 inches and added lots of compost and chicken poop back in Feb. I&#x27;m starting with crowns because of the length of time involved until harvest...I can&#x27;t wait that long to eat my asparagus! I&#x27;m going to put in a drip irrigation to keep up with the watering requirements. I&#x27;m very excited! <br/>Good luck with seeds!

I did this last year with some success-- sowed the seeds directly into the ground- mostly out of laziness!
