Two year’s labour: one asparagus


Two years ago I planted a dozen asparagus crowns, watered them, mollycoddled them, and this year harvested our first crop: one asparagus. Here you see it shortly before it was drowned in runny egg. Yum.

I am reliably informed that the third year is take-off year. Gardening rewards those that wait…I hope so anyway.
