Asparagus is one of Dad's favorite foods. For years he eyed a wild asparagus plant in the fencerow. This year he transplanted the ancient vegetable while it was dormant. When Dad dug up the plant last Friday he discovered a mass of tangled of roots. There were so many that Dad ended up extending the asparagus bed. Now that the roots are adequately spaced in rows, Dad anticipates an abundant harvest of asparagus in a couple of years.
