Asparagus

IMG_3323The wait is almost over. We started our asparagus patch in the spring of 2009 and patiently watched the plants grow throughout the following 2 years. The wispy fern-like leaves are quite decorative; but of course the ultimate reward it to harvest your own spears. This year they should be mature enough; and the first precocious spears are starting to push up to the sun. Having waited over 2 years, we’re eager to sample the results.
