the 2013 asparagus post


The last time I looked there was nothing to see. Judging by the length of the spears today, they must have started to come through about a week ago, around a month later than last year. I gave half to Emily of rhubarb fame, and promised some to the lovely Chinese lady who brought me some lettuce plant.


Tea today: eggs on pureed nettle tops and the sweetest asparagus dippers; rhubarb crumble for pudding.  Very good indeed.

That sounds heavenly ! Homegrown , everything tastes just so much nicer .
Your allotment swaps are evolving into an alternative economy .... Meanwhile I'm seriously thinking of planting leeks in a window box ... the supermarket was charging the equivalent fo A POUND EACH for them today .
