One of my favorite home-grown food is asparagus. I love that they are perennial, so grow year after year with minimal effort on the part of the gardener. And since asparagus is expensive in the store, it’s awesome to be able to pick your own.
Snap them off when they are 7″ – 9″ tall and the tips are still tightly closed. Once the buds begin to open, the asparagus will become tough. Asparagus is best eaten soon after harvest.
