Yesterday I picked the first asparagus for the year.
By the end of this week, we’ll be getting twice this much every day. We’re always so excited to pick the first of the asparagus and by the end of the season, I’m walking out to the garden hoping there is nothing to pick.
I think I’m going to try cutting it up and freeze drying some of the extra. It may end up only being good for cream of asparagus soup but we do like that.
For the first few weeks though, we’ll eat it all and love it. After that, we’ll not be so excited to have it every day.
