Re: Planting Pricey Produce

Two crops that are often expensive, but are easy to grow:

garlic-plant in the fall, save some for replanting next fall

Shallots: plant in late spring, save some for replanting the next year.

Both are pretty much pest free and store well.

For the longer term, asparagus is a perennial. Just make sure to really prepare the bed well and keep it weed free. Lots of compost/organic matter, nitrogen(heavy feeder) and enjoy a single planting for the rest of your life.
