This isn’t a weed!

There are a number of definitions of “weed”  -- noxious, invasive, aggressive.  I think a weed is a plant that grows where I don’t want it to grow.  Call me controlling, but it’s true.  Grass is nice in a lawn, but not in my flower bed.  Lilly of the Valley are lovely, but stay behind the border! 

Last night, I found this growing in my lawn.  ARGH!  My favorite vegetable has officially become a ‘weed.’ 

Oh the horror.  Asparagus is a perennial with deep roots.  Others will follow.  I can’t kill it, it’s too delicious.

Help!  Give me a solution quick.
