    I’ve heard about the eating/buying locally, within a 100 miles mindset and it is appealing. I’ld like to look into a little more.
    Good luck with the asparagus! That’ll be great! We planted it from seed 2 years ago and it’s doing quite well. Actually amazing how quickly it grows.

    I grow asparagus in my garden, and it’s gotten to be so successful that I just ordered 30 more roots from a mail order place. You can Google info on the best way to plant the roots, but most agree that you dig a trench, place the roots in there so they can grow upward in the right direction, and as they grow, add more soil to cover them and fill in the trench. Then be patient and wait for a year or so before you start cutting the asparagus. Once established, they are one of the first things to come up in the garden in the spring and are so wonderful, and come back year after year with a minimum of work. BTW: mulch, mulch, mulch, unless you like to weed!

    I grew asparagus successfully at our last house. They were thin spears, not the fat ones. If it’s a hot day, get out there right away because the spears can start to shoot up and open within hours.
    I am also growing a cold resistant heirloom tomato called “Siberian” this year. Obviously, I am not optimistic about our summer weather.
    Happy gardening.

    J&J Gardens in Lyalta sells asparagus crowns in the spring if you want local. You order them in Jan or Feb and they call you when they’ve dug them up (usually late April or so). They also do cherry and other fruit trees and ornamentals.

    Our asparagus is in full production, its first really good year since we planted it – yum!

    Mmmm….boursin cheese…my adult daughter calls it ‘candy cheese’! I’ll have to tell her about this dish! And the gluten free brownies will go to my celiac friend. Thanks!
