Green Goodness

Our first pickings of Asparagus EVER!
I must say fresh asparagus has moved right up to one of my favorites.

We haven't had large quantities but enough for a side dish.

Besides the asparagus soup I made and wrote about a few posts back we have mostly enjoyed it baked lightly. Drizzle with olive oil, a dash of sea salt, sprinkled with cheese baked for several minutes.
Simply Amazing!

Other garden goods we are eating so far this season....bok choy, spinach, beet greens, chives, lots of lettuce, and rhubarb.

We just planted our asparagus finally this past weekend. I can not wait for that harvest. (2 years, right?)

I did find 2 patches of chives at my new house. That excited me some. :-)

Yummy!! I love asparagus. I've never baked it, I will have to give that a try. Hopefully next year we will plant an asparagus bed.

Don't know if we could grow asparagus here in the tropics but, it's always been a favorite of mine...sauteed with some butter and garlic.

I wanted to plant asparagus this year and never got around to it. My gardens are finally looking better since all the rain stopped though!!!!
