Goal: Create a simulated root cellar using a used freezer and a Raspberry Pi microcomputer to store garden crops using correct temperature and humidity while avoiding dangerous electrical wiring.
Last spring (2016) I planted Asparagus as 3 year old crowns. That first season they came up spriggy and I ignored them. I cut them back before winter.
This spring I saw my first edible shoot March 7. It was an unusually warm winter.
