Asparagus is a spring flowering perennial vegetable that is a delicious addition to any garden that will return each year if cared for properly. It can be water bath canned, pickled and even used in table top centerpiece crafts.
Water makes up 93% of the composition. Asparagus is low in calories and is very low in sodium. It is a good source of vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium and zinc, and a very good source of dietary fibre, protein, beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, thiamine, riboflavin, rutin, niacin, folic acid, iron, phosphorus, potassium, copper, manganese and selenium, as well as , a trace mineral that enhances the ability of insulin to transport glucose from the bloodstream into cells as quoted by wikipedia.Asparugus is so delicious and once you have a row of it, you will have some fresh every spring. It is pretty work intensive to plant it and gwet it started but so worth it for the fact that then you will see it come back every year.
