asparagus i love thee…

While we were away last month our gardens had been doing a sprint.

Below is our asparagus that went wild.  I had heard that it is delicious picked straight from the garden and eaten raw (thanks Jackie French) so we tried it.  Yep, amazing.  Some of the shoots were about 40cm long and a bit skinny, but the whole shoot was sweet and edible.  Asparagus, i love thee…

It just keeps growing and growing.  I put some raw into a salad with lettuce, baby spinach, carrot, semi dried tomatoes, red capsicum, cauliflower and olives.  Jaw dropping delicious.  Couldn’t convince the kids to try it, all the more for us i say.
