Asparagus plants will reward you year after year

Young asparagus shoots rise from the soil.

Dear Aggie: Are there any special tricks to growing asparagus in the north country?

One of my favorite treats in May is fresh asparagus, picked from our garden and steamed minutes later. Sweet and tender, asparagus is a nutritious vegetable that grows very well in the north country. Given that demand for local asparagus typically outstrips available supply at local farmstands, the best strategy to ensure a steady supply is to grow it yourself.
