Asparagus now in Season

Asparagus now in Season and best eaten within 2 hours from picking.  Find your local Asparagus grower and gorge yourself on really fresh shoots, or buy crowns and put in your own bed for a crop in 2 years.

If like me you are lucky enough to have an Asparagus bed you will cutting selected tips already.  I planted my beds 2 years ago and can only pick the ones where there are 2 or more shoots per crown.  They are delicious and incredibly sweet and tender if picked and cooked straight away.

I will be filling in any gaps this year with new crowns and hoping to try out some new recipes so that we can gorge on the crop and not get bored of such a healthy vegetable.
