Here is the first harvest of the growing season- a plate full of asparagus. This is enough for about 2 meals for us. For my dinner last night I made a sausage, asparagus, egg and cheese scramble. There were plenty of smaller shoots left in the garden so we will be eating quite a bit of asparagus in the coming days and weeks. I might get enough to can a few jars, if I’m lucky.
I’m hoping we don’t get as many beetles as last year. The beetles started popping up after the first week or so, laying little black eggs on the new asparagus shoots. While they were still edible and I ate them, I couldn’t convince Heather they were still okay to eat, even after cutting out the areas with eggs on them.
