April Fool - No Asparagus!

Our first Asparagus

 It may be April Fools Day but no this is no joke.

Our first asparagus had popped through the earth today.

I have grown these plants from seed, sown just three years ago.

We have enjoyed this first 'fruit' of the season, just lightly poached and then topped with just a little melted butter and a sprinkling of sea salt and black pepper. 

Wonderful, let's just hope there will be more to come as the season continues.

  1. Our asparagus is now now in its 6th year and we had our first cutting (of this year) today :) If yours is so young rather let it be to strengthen up for another year. Diane
