This is the first spring we’ve been able to harvest from our Asparagus bed. It’s been 3 years since I planted the seeds Hubert gave me. I don’t remember the name-but it’s a purple variety-and it’s very tasty.
Miss Cindy bought me a few Asparagus plants last year-they were already 2 or 3 years old-so we’ve been harvesting a little from them too.
I was probably in my 30s before I ever tasted Asparagus. The best way I’ve found to cook it-is to roast the spears in the oven.
Lay the asparagus out on a pan and drizzle on olive oil-sprinkle with salt and pepper-and cook in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. It is so good!
The only problem I’ve found with our Asparagus-is that there just isn’t enough-hopefully each year will bring more production from our bed.
