Spring Asparagus...

The thing about living in the country is that neighbors come together to help each other. Our neighbor passed away this spring and his sister asked for help in tending his 100+ colonies of asparagus. My mom and Kaziah picked over 13lbs of the yummy greens during the first picking and another 9lbs the second!

Needless to say, asparagus graced the menu every evening, and a few mornings, for a few weeks. We even managed to pickle a few jars! Although, roasting has got to be my favorite way to prepare asparagus -so fast and easy and yummy with a bit of parmesan sprinkled on before serving.

Garden 2011, Starting Summer Off Right...

Starting summer off right, all day in the garden! Yesterday we planted the majority of our garden. Looking forward to spending more time in the garden than I have been able in the past. Finn loves to be in the garden too!
