Does anyone grow Asparagus?
We eat a fair amount of asparagus, and I'd like to grow it here in Zone 2b/3a. Can I ? I have tons of sunshine.
I understand it takes years to grow, but I assume I could get fairly mature asparagus at the local greenhouse, and eat it this year?
If so, how much would I need to feed 3 people, say, once a week, and how long does the growing season for it last?
Are there any hints I should know about, and is it worth the trouble and space it needs?
