It's Asparagus Time
Asparagus time is one of my favorite seasons in the garden. Each Spring it is the first crop to be harvested and a sure sign that winter is over. I find great comfort in seeing these purplish/green shoots emerging from the earth. It is reassurance that warmer weather is close at hand. This year, however, the asparagus is a bit early. These past few days of unseasonably warm temperatures have coaxed these tender shoots a couple of weeks early. I won't complain, however, as they taste heavenly. Their early emergence has given me inspiration to get busy planting, planting, planting!
