5 Perennial Vegetables That Grow Back Year After Year

People who like to cook with asparagus can't wait for the stalks to start to grow out of the ground in the spring. 

1. Asparagus

This is an annual veggie that isn't too hard to grow. The only hard part is that you have to wait a year or two before you can pick the first spears. 

Ramps, which are also called wild leeks or wild garlic, have a mild onion flavor and taste great when eaten raw. They can be used in salads or sautéed as a side dish. 

2. Ramps

They are found in wooded areas, but you can also add them to your own wooded area. In Zones 3–7, ramps are hardy.

Everyone talking about their rhubarb is another sure sign that spring is here. 

3. Rhubarb

It's a great choice for your garden or yard because it has green and red-tinged roots and big, wide leaves. 

Fiddleheads, the bright green, tightly curled tips of ferns, are one of the most exciting things to see at farmers' markets in the spring. 

4. Fiddleheads

You can grow your own fiddleheads from annual ostrich ferns in shady areas or woods with wet soil like that found near brooks and streams.

Onions can be grown in an annual garden, but there are a few that are easy to grow. 

5. Onions

Bunching onions, which are also called scallions or green onions, can grow in Zones 5–9 and grow quickly.
