Asparagus Anyone?

July 22nd 2016 - 001

Table for four you say…you might have to wait another two years for a nice steamed plate of amazing asparagus…

This little patch was started only this year, and as we all know it takes a good three years before you can harvest the spears. I have a handy little bamboo steamer that sits proudly atop my stir-fry pan just waiting for the proper time. In the meantime many stir-fry’s will take place in anticipation for the glorious day I can harvest the tender asparagus spears…

I actually got a late start to planting out this little patch, but the first patch planted last year didn’t do so well.. not enough light I’m afraid was the problem, so I planted my peas in front of the asparagus plants that took a magnifying glass to find the ferns. Oh well live and learn that’s what I say..

I really love this vegetable so much and thought it would be fun trying to grow them in my own garden. On a side note a person who has tendencies toward gout should not eat those tender spears of goodness. Hum…Perhaps, I’ll throw caution to the wind and sample just a few.. It will be fun just watching it grow very tall next year anyway.. Still a happy gardener just the same…

I’ll just drink my homemade Turmeric Tea, before I partake in a plate of those spears..

It helps clear up the gout.. tried and tested to work for me..
