First asparagus harvest of the year
Topic: asparagus
I harvested a good handful of thick stalks and a few thin ones.  I see that last year I harvested first on June 17th, only a day earlier than this year.  So much for a late spring!  I guess the asparagus is not as sensitive to air temperature as other things.

First asparagus harvest of the year
Topic: asparagus

First asparagus harvest of the year.  The biggest stalks have grown about six inches a day the last two days.  These are from old established plants.  The younger plants, only there about two years, just have a few small less-than-little-finger thickness stems coming up.

Fresh just-picked asparagus has a nutty flavor and a crisp texture unlike any asparagus I've ever bought from a store.
