Carl, asparagus does bloom, although not readily apparent, and produces little red berries. One can find wild asparagus, but farmers keep roadside ditches mowed, and fence rows are a thing of the past.

I tagged along with my farm kids to the Farmer's Market yest. I did babysitting duties as well as helping keep the vegetables stocked. It was crazy! So many customers. I was much encouraged. There ARE people out there willing to spend a little extra for quality food. Are you among them?

Randy, as for thrift stores, I used to think of Goodwill as a good place to go... "Goodwill to Few Men" by Betty Bowers ("America's Best Christian") and some other articles made me rethink that. The discussion on Atheist Nexus also mentions some alternatives.

That's really interesting, Joan.  I don't think I've ever seen asparagus growing "in the wild."  Does it have some sort of bloom that flowers when not picked for eating?

Randy, when driving to Dayton, WA, many of the roadside ditches, which often carry water,  are filled with asparagus. It is such a pretty sight seeing the greens swaying in a breeze. I associate asparagus with damp ditches.

Joan, I don't think my soil is any drier or wetter than average. I never have to water my asparagus, however.

Carl, I appreciate the transformation of exercise into bacon. That works for me. 

Randy, do you have your asparagus in a moist soil? I will give it a try in the glacial sands of my new garden. We are limited for water according to how much water the well will supply.

Oh, man.....grilled asparagus.  That's the best!  [ drooling ]

Grilled last night: chicken parts, sweet corn, and asparagus. Yum. It's the last of the asparagus. I quit picking it on the first of August. Been eating it since April! It lasts longer, season wise, than any other fresh garden vegetable.
