Hi Mike... I'm in zone 9b, as well. I'm wondering if you decided to plant asparagus.... and if you did, how did it work out for you? I just bought crowns and hope to plant this week. I have a spot that is cooler than most of my property. Wish me luck!

I put crowns in last summer and cut the canes down in the late fall. I now have first asparagus in March. Should I let them grow and not pick them?. No frost here. 1200 feet up and maybe 4 miles from the ocean in California. Fog at night in May-July but sun during the day. Warm to hot fall.
