Found my first asparagus last night on the way home from work (southern DeKalb County).  Got 7 stalks from 2 patches.  It’s just starting.  Checked about a half dozen other spots and didn’t find any.  It’s about time—been getting jealous reading all the reports from down state.  grin

Amazing how much difference there is in this long state. Southern Illinois asparagus is seeded out all over. Around here in central Illinois we’ve been picking for weeks, but the seeds aren’t as evident. And you are just starting. Crazy.

First big score last night finally.  Before this, been getting a few here and there.

I agree, Jeff, it is crazy—particularly considering I’m only (I think) 75 to 100 miles north of you.
