This afternoon I harvested asparagus! I planted this asparagus when my daughter was three months old, so tired and so hopeful. Here's the asparagus root before I planted it....
It was fun to harvest the delicious vegetable today with that baby who is now so big--she held the spears.
So tonight for dinner we are having--
roasted home-grown fresh asparagus
roasted local potatoes
and a big pot of black bean soup, because although I can happily eat asparagus and potatoes for supper, my husband and children need a little more in the way of calories!
Spring is here. The asparagus is up. I am happy.
