Asparagus is a vegetable that you can grow well yourself on sandy soil. It's a perennial vegetable that requires some patience from the grower. You can harvest it from the second year after sowing. But the flavour of self grown, fresh asparagus makes up for it.The combination of asparagus with egg and ham is of course classic. But this vegetable can also be used in soups, salads, savory pies and wrapped in ham as a delicious snack.
