when does asparagus normally become available in the farmers markets in the Columbia, SC area? I'd like to get some to freeze, like my sister-in-law in Delaware does. She buys a bushel of asparagus each year, and says that it freezes beautifully.
If there are any growers out there, I wonder if you could share any secrets? I've had a patch that I planted many (maybe 7) years ago. I think they should be producing nicely now, but I still only get about 2 stalks per week during the summer. No where near the output I'd like to get!
