asparagus - first of the season
The asparagus bed has started putting up stalks. I ate this one raw. It's sweeter than store-bought asparagus.
I don't know how big the bed really is...it's sandwiched between wild growth of peppermint and lemon balm. I think about digging it up to take a look - I planted 5 crowns a few years ago. Hvae to look up care and feeding of asparagus.
