During this early planting season, we can also plant crowns of asparagus which is a perennial crop that will start producing harvestable spears in year two. For rhubarb pie, plant crowns of rhubarb, another perennial that will produce for years into the future. Spring bearing or ever-bearing strawberries are another nutritious and fun crop to add to your personal garden. Take your soil tests, get your planting beds ready and let's get ready to garden!
