Worth the Wait

Frozen asparagus is lackluster. Canned is often mushy.  There just is no good way, in my opinion, to preserve asparagus.

So, we wait.  A few days ago, the long wait ended when we each had 2 steamed spears with dinner.

The first asparagus harvest!!  It is trickling in.  I am lucky that I have very generous neighbors that share with me from

their well-established bed.

We love it. Lily and Paco especially will eat pounds a day.  If you think perhaps you don’t like asparagus, eat it the same day it is picked and you will change your mind.

I never buy it at the store, preferring to wait for the good stuff and then we revel in it!
