Here they are. ready to go.
Asparagus. I have been promised six per bag (only got ten total).
This is where the planting occurred. This was a space I originally had identified for a mandarin orange tree but realized it would perfectly for asparagus (and would keep my garden along the fence available).
Tools of the trade. I made a go of it with just a pick and hoe (to my surprise, honestly):
The asparagus roots removed from the bags. Look like little octopoid aliens, right?
This point of the program is where you see pictures of me digging one trench and then two, measuring them to make sure that they were at least six inches deep, then laying the asparagus roots flat in the trenches eighteen inches apart and covering them with three inches of dirt. You would see pictures - if I had not deleted them. Take my word for it that this is what happened. All have is the final result:

The most surprising thing about this whole effort is it took me a little over an hour to achieve. I constantly think it is going to take so much longer.
Here is to hoping I see sprouts soon!
