Many people grow fresh vegetables for their health and enjoyment. After all, gardening is a rewarding hobby. Still, veteran vegetable sowers could tell you how time-consuming it is to plant and replant the garden plot each spring, year in and year out. Planting a delicious perennial vegetable like asparagus is one solution to this problem.


1. Why grow your own?

Growing your own asparagus is a lengthy endeavor that will reward you richly. Asparagus beds, if properly planted and tended, will produce asparagus for two decades or longer. The stalk's longevity as a perennial makes it a great investment, and you get the satisfaction of harvesting your own food every year. If you plant enough, you might even find you save money on this veggie, which can be costly in the produce isle.
