Comments On - Asparagus Spears

I'm looking forward to getting started with Asparagus. I'd love it if you could write more on harvesting and maybe show more pics on how they grow! Thanks!

How nice, David, that you don't let them go to waste. I love derelict patches & orchards...ever find any morels on the way?

Judy, Here in Nebraska, asparagus can be found quite often in the wild. The most likely place to find asparagus is along old railroad track beds. I don't know why but it just seems to like to grow there. Another place to forage for asparagus is on old derelict long forgotten homestead places. With the advent of large farming practices here the original homestead places just fall into disrepair. Along with asparagus these homestead places most likely will have a patch of rhubarb as well. Our asparagus time is over now. Many times fruit trees and berry patches will be near by. Always permission is granted from farmers to forage these areas and as for old railroad beds, just try to get there first.

Have a great asparagus day.
