Worth Every Minute

Asparagus takes three years to mature in the garden.

Year one: plant crowns 18″ under the soil. Mulch heavily. Water and wait. Watch the little sprouts grow and use every ounce of self control to resist the urge to pick and eat. In the autumn, prune to the ground.

Year two: Water and wait. Watch the little sprouts grow and use every ounce of self control to resist the urge to pick and eat (you can harvest very lightly, but never much and not enough to cook anything good with.). In the autumn, prune to the ground.

Year three: Harvest time, Baby!

Is it worth the wait?

Yum.

You all know how I am with recipes, but I’ll give it a shot:

What you see here is a bunch of asparagus (purple, of course), sauteed in 1 stick butter. Add leftover chicken and heat through. Salt to taste and serve over that skinny spaghetti (what is it called?). That is a meal I can be proud of…
