Found this guy when I went to water my asparagus seedlings today. Of the 20 or so that have germinated so far, this is the only one that has sent up multiple shoots. I'm not sure yet if this is the result of some kind of damage or if it's some kind of genetic proclivity. I suspect that it might be the former, but I'm excited to see if out produces my other asparagus as it matures. If I'm that lucky, hopefully it's a female. That'll make it easier to get that trait in seedlings going forward, and will be respectable enough to divide those crowns and spread them around as is.
