I’ve checked my usual spots this week, and still nothing.  Anyone having any luck yet?  Was wondering how far north it has made it.

Ate my first wild asparagus of the season tonight for dinner. Did not find lots and it was not real thick yet. Just tasty.

WTF, it’s all over, watch the ditches when your driving around, I find new spots by looking for tall plants that have gone to seed (easy to spot).  Often, there are some shorter, edible stalks nearby.  Once you find a location, you can check back for years.  Some pics on this page showing what the tall ones look like:
