Asparagi by the dashboard light

I figured Mars soil would be best for growing candy bars with almonds in them. But no. According to these reports, it's actually well-suited for growing, of all things, asparagus.

Which would be great if the soil were here on Earth. But — maybe you already know this — it's butt-ass cold on Mars. That's why they found ice on Mars, but not water.

Now I'm off to find me one of them Mars Bars.

My husband could not live on Mars. He hates asparagus.
