Yes, we love asparagus and have 3 patches. Last year we harvested so much that we gave oodles to our daughters. We couldn't keep up with it. My daughters love pickled asparagus so next year I'll try and make a few jars of that!
Now that I seem to have more time and a helper I may read up and see what I can do. My mom warned me it was a real commitment to get conditions right for success. Will you take pictures in spring? For inspiration @gjones? we love it pickled too.
