  • WICHE: Asparagus is a big garden investment

    I am only now recovering; it has been four days since Andy and I planted out 100 asparagus crowns.

    Planting asparagus is an investment on all accounts – time, labor, money, patience – and then the big payoff, which is fresh asparagus for 2 months each spring right from your own garden.

    This is the second time I have a participated in an asparagus-planting extravaganza (I told Andy when we were finished that two times in a lifetime is enough for me!).
