Oh my – I am SO jealous.
Planted my crowns out a couple of weeks ago (I know, I know, I’m behind with the blog update!), so that pic will be mine in about 3 years time…

Mouthwatering. I too am jealous. One day…

Oh wow, is that yours Nic? Congratulations, it looks fantastic. We started a small asparagus bed last year, but I think it’s going to take a couple of years yet before we get anything we can eat.

Where’s the Hollendaise sauce?

Hi Nic, nothing arouses so much pleasure and pride as the first asparagus spears! We have had a few these past week or so too.
Have a lovely Easter.

Lucky lucky you. I won’t show this photograph to my husband, he will be soooo jealous.

Jane – me too, this beauty belongs to my neighbour (or belonged as being the first spear I’m sure it was scoffed long ago). His asparagus bed is the envy of the plot
Janet – my sentiments exactly, one day. And if I’d acted on that when I first thought it I’d have a beautifully established bed by now!
Choc – at least a couple of years I read and while it’s tempting to pick the spears that form in the early years it’s worth resisting for the good of future harvests apparently
Tom – mmm, or deliciously soft boiled egg for dipping
Peggy – and now I am jealous – I may have a nice picture but you have real spears. Enjoy x
MC – I see an asparagus post coming up to set the record straight!
