asparagus and yacon

the yacon i got in the mail yesterday may look a bit battered but there is ample new growth on the stem which leaves me guardedly optimistic (!) that it will pull through so i planted it to ad something of a different andean tuber to the population than the garden has had to can see by the one on my deck that even in containers they can become quite tall so i put a cage around it to provide support as it has a long season and it is already june...we will be seeing how much production we get before the first killing frost...a bed over the asparagus in the garden is looking well in fact that the plants are putting out additional spears to feed the roots...and the deeper the roots the more cold hardy the plant...twelve new spears is good news on the north end of the bed...more as more goes in.
