    Asparagus is tame -- I've got a half acre of it.

    ibcnya..............don't forget us in the Northwest, any day now we will have more morels than we know what to do with.
    Bruce in NE........that asparagus looks great, is it easy to grow? I plan to set up a bed next year, did you start them as 1, 2, or 3 year olds?

    Oh my, you sure know how to make a mouth water....a gorgeous batch of Morels and Asparagus! Ours (mushrooms) should be popping this weekend if the weather holds, despite the ticks, it's worth it!

    I've blanched my 'schrooms and frozen them w/juice to bring out and place around a deer roast in the winter, yummy. I also have a stuffed Morel Mushroom recipe if anyone is interested, very simple, mix up your favorite bread stuffing and bake, the specifics I'd have to look for.

    Crashy, where at in Wa?

    I'm over here on Whidbey Island.
    What kind of permit are you talking about?
    For mushroom hunting? This is new to me.

    Once it gets established, it's easy to grow. Biggest headache is weeds. I started with 1 year old roots -- jersey all-male variety. Good place to buy crowns is jerseyasparagus.com

    I am in Vancouver we go above Carson in the Columbia River Gorge to hunt.
    We have to have a permit for everything here shrooms, huckleberries. They have had it in the Gifford Pinchot area for years. You may want to check with your ranger station to make sure you don't need one too. You can get a ticket if you don't have one. They are free...for the life of me I do not understand why you need one if they are free but thats the forest service for ya ;)
