This year we reminded each other that we needed to keep an eye out for the emerging spears. About two weeks ago we noticed some new spears and found enough along our little fence line for a couple of meals.
Today we noticed a couple out on the road with large bags of asparagus, and decided that we needed to cut some for tonights meal.
The easiest way to find the asparagus is to look for the dried out ferns from last years plants. At each plant you can find a few new spears.
