  1. Started asparagus from seed in 2013, first year over wintered inside, then planted outside. So far it has made it through 2 winters and last spring had thin pencil sized spears. Hoping to have full sized spears this spring. Once established plants are supposed to last about 20 years. Garden asparagus from wwww.saltspring seeds.com

  2. Louise Piché in Rock Creek, Dawson Yukon has successfully grown ground cherries (aka golden berries), peanuts, asparagus and buckwheat. This year she will be trying to grow ginger and artichokes! We’ll keep you posted.
