    I mean, the other vegetable taste just as good, but some how asparagus seems classier, and you always have to pay more to have it in restaurants.

    Good question.  I never thought of it that way, but I think you are right.  I suppose it has to do with the fact it is more expensive than the usual vegetables, and a lot of people don't like it so it seems more rare than say green beans.

    I love asparagus, steamed--but it can be pricey.

    Asparagus go bad faster and mantaining them fresh is actually harder. They are also not as easy to find as say broccolli.

    For certain, it is more expensive, and for good reason.

    Plant a kernal of corn, and you reap corn.

    Plant a bean and you reap a crop of beans........

    Not so with asparagus...........

    It can take up to three years to cultivate one single crop.

    You must be a dedicated farmer.   It takes time and personal investment.

    This investment is costly............I rarely live two years in a single city.

    If I leave something behind............I  hope the next person will benefit or find enjoyment.

    But, honestly, I do not want to invest TWO years of toil, so that another can reap!
