Never mind the stock market--invest in your future by planting asparagus!
You know it's spring when asparagus shoots up from its winter slumber. These delicious perennials need 3 years to get established, but after that will provide decades of spring food. Plant them into a bed richly amended with compost or manure and wait! Seeds can take up to 30 days to germinate.
Seeds grown by Bluebird Forest Garden in Orofino, Idaho.
