Tony cut them in half for me, leaving a flap so the top and bottom are hinged together. I drilled holes in the bottoms and sides of each container. I labeled both containers, and included a label inside each as well. I put in soil, a watered it thoroughly, planted seeds, covered them up, and taped the containers closed. Here goes!!
The asparagus seeds I planted two to a hole as well, but only put 12 seeds in. I have a pretty big area that I want to fill in with asparagus, so I could use as many as I can grow this first year.
Oh - and of course, a big thank you to #3 who let me use her fancy duct tape. I didn't realize I was all out until I went to start filling containers with dirt! Thank you #3! Our first winter sown containers are beautiful!
