I am no longer forced to make do with just one or two spears of Asparagus; I'm now picking millions of spears!
Well, OK, maybe not millions, but more than the odd one or two.
The Asparagus harvest in England this year has been very sparse, we are told, because of the strange weather conditions. Most of the Asparagus fields were flooded-out at just the critical time, so most of what is on sale in our shops is still from Peru. No problems with drainage in my raised beds though - even in the wettest of weather they drain really well.
Here's what I harvested yesterday. My nine plants are never going to produce a glut, but this is certainly a worthwhile harvest.
Now, where's the butter...?
