Hello asparagus!

asparagusSpring.  It’s arrived early this year.

That means my asparagus is up an entire month early.  Yahoo!!!  Does this mean the season will last a month longer?  One can dream.  I love asparagus.  It is my favorite vegetable. Sometimes I eat it three times a day when it is popping up so fast you can almost see it grow.  Had I known better I would have planted three-times the crowns in my little bed.  Did you know that asparagus just-picked, sliced on the bias, sautéed in olive oil smells like popcorn when cooking?  Asparagus is one of those veggies that tastes completely different picked fresh out of the garden.

Happy Spring!
