Crop #3, Asparagus

We had our first asparagus spears today and we loved it. I was curious to see if asparagus or rhubarb came next in our food gathering and the yummy green asparagus beat the pieplant. Most of the years as the kids grew up, they and Bing didn't like asparagus and I got to eat all of it . Now everyone likes it and I have to share. ASparagus is packed with folate and vitamin B and it's a diuretic. If you eat too much at once, you may pea green. The tulips, daffodils and tulips are blooming now and the trilliums are just opening. A pretty spring world!
