Gasp! Asparagus Sprouts!

Potted asparagus, sunning themselves outside.
 During our recent plumbing misadventures my potted asparagus seeds got shuffled over onto the dining room table, right next to the radiator.  Since I was expecting them to come up the day after what I now refer to as "The Waterfall Day", I was disappointed several days later to look in and see nothing, and I wondered if they had gotten too warm and it killed the sprouting seeds.  I was preparing myself mentally to set the pots outside to deal with later, when suddenly - gasp! - I realized that those odd, tiny sticks poking out of the potting soil were actually little asparagus sprouts!  (N was quite amused when I looked eagerly into four pots in a row, gasping in surprise at each and every sprout I saw.)

You don't see them, you say?  Look closely...they are so small!
