Waiting for Fresh Asparagus … I Can Almost Taste It

Just yesterday, I was looking partly proud of my little vegetable bed, seeing the first flowers on my tomato plants, green thumbnail-sized berries on my strawberries and some quickly-expanding cabbage and lettuces.

And then there are these little bare spots with a broken sticks where my asparagus is supposed to be.

Does this mean a tiny crop failure? Well, from reading the most recent entry in one of the Sun’s new reader blogs, Kitsap Farm to Fork, Diane Fish mentions that it can take three seasons for a first harvest.

So I guess I’ll just have to wait to have my own home-grown.

But that doesn’t mean no asparagus. My local farmers market (Bremerton) had its opening day last Thursday and I expect to see some there soon. Admittedly, I wasn’t looking for it last week because I was busy taking photos, so someone may very well have had it.

But I’ll definitely be looking for it this week after seeing the Farm to Fork’s delicious-looking Asparagus and Risotto recipe. Check it out.

  1. Registered Voter, that looks delicious and rich with the mascarpone, but easy to make. Great find!
