*crowns of asparagus
Asparagus is one of those veggies that we didn't eat a lot of while growing up in the South during my childhood years. I however, love asparagus and have always wanted to grow it in our garden. Last year while shopping at Lowes Garden Center I found some asparagus crowns sitting there waiting on me! The first year of having them in our garden we didn't harvest to many spears but after a year of wintering over, we have harvested tons!! I am over the top thrilled. I want to encourage you, if you have thought about growing asparagus... DO IT! They are really one of the easiest plants to care for and harvest. Every day I have to snap off some delicious asparagus stalks to add to a salad, or steam for a side dish with our dinner.
