Our roadside stands are selling fresh asparagus from their fields. I have not hunted wild asparagus in decades. Use to be I could walk down a country road with a paper bag and a knife and come home with a bag full. Now they spray the roadsides with herbicide so there is none and it there was I would't eat it.
It is too bad we can't find it along back roads anymore. It was the perfect place. Bird would sit on the wires and crap planting the seeds and the salt that was spread on the roads and thrown up on the road side by snow plows mad a great place for asparagus patches to flourish.
