It wont be long

Asparagus is very easy to grow; I fill the bottom of polystyrene box with dried grass and sheep excrement. The top layer is a mixture of compost and sand. I just have to water it once a day, The compost in the bottom will take care of the fertilizer part. In temperate region it took about 3 years before it can be harvested but in the tropics it only took 10 months.

It is bushier with so many tiny shoot. Seven more months and i can have my home-grown organic asparagus. Long enough time for me to finish all vegetable that I’ve grown.
