A favorite project I created for Country Gardens, photo by Jim Westphalen.
Asparagus is the vegetable of the season right now and it looks beautiful combined with flowers from your spring garden.
Wrap a runner band around a coffee size can . Cut asparagus stalk to 1" to 2" taller than the can. Place the stalks side by side standing staight up inside the rubber band. Tie with a ribbon to hide the rubber band. Add flowers.
Voila ... that was easy,... healthy fresh asparagus will last a week or longer. ( or when the flowers pass you can cook em up)
