 Can anyone tell me what this is? It looks like an asparagus but I have another 3 in a different part of the garden and one is over 60cm high. Very fast growing too.

Roasted asparagus is delicious too http://allrecipes.com/recipe/oven-roasted-asparagus/ 

You lucky thing 

Now you're going to have to read up on how to look after an asparagus bed 

 

Oh, if you've never eaten it before you ought to be aware that it makes some people's pee smell odd afterwards - doesn't last long but can be a bit alarming if you don't know why

Within minutes. Dove!!  But I don't think there will be much effect from one, two or three spears.  We pigged out on Pembrokeshire asparagus at the weekend.  Delicious!

Makes a nice quiche with a not too strong cheese.  maybe some ricotta.
