Asparagus: I waited a day too long

img_20180621_171709180063748.jpg

Generous green thumb parishioners planted two-year roots last year. This year, I’ve done nothing to help them really. No lime. Kind of weeding only once, and now the weeds are taller than them. They don’t seem to mind. Those above were left a few too many hours and really took off. They’re so fast. They are still good. You break them starting at the top, about every six inches or whatever is convenient. When they don’t pop apart, discard the rest. The taller one popped only to half way. The others went almost to the bottom.

Laid out on a plate, microwaved for until you hear the first explosions (about 10-15 seconds). A bit of salt or just as they are. Even not heated up. Mmm mmm.

If you’re quick, from garden to stomach in less than a minute. :-)

    May your stomach enjoy much happiness, Father, and may your taste buds sing the Hallelujah chorus from Messiah!

    Another thought: some of us are like your asparagus. We start out slow and suddenly bolt!
