Asparagus wouldn't be a top choice for deer to eat, like many other vegetables. Onions, garlic and many herbs, because they are strong smelling are not attractive to deer. for the other vegetables, try using a cover of netting to keep them out. https://www.extension.purdue.edu/extmedia/fnr/fnr-486-w.pdf
there is a list of plants less frequently damaged by deer in this link: https://www.canr.msu.edu/news/how_to_protect_your_yard_and_garden_from_deer_and_rabbits
