Asparagus is a very common vegetable on the dinner plate. It’s a very good permaculture vegetable also. It’s a perennial which is a bonus. As far as the dinner table goes, I’m picky about my foods, and do not like mushy vegetables. So I like asparagus that’s still crunchy. I like it pan fried with garlic in olive oil or butter. With a little salt. I plan to start planting asparagus in my garden next year. We will see how it goes.
