Our First Asparagus Spears of the Season

No matter what the calendar says, it's not spring for me until the asparagus spears start to peak purple heads above the ground.

Since spring officially began, we've been scouring our asparagus patch almost every day, hoping to spy a tip breaking through the winter hardened earth.

Finally.

Spring.

The first two spears emerged last Thursday. After an unusually warm Friday, eight more spears appeared among new weeds and old leaves.

The theme of the season plays out in my garden.

New life rises from dead, dried out stalks.

Spring is here.

  1. I remember we had daffodils outside our kitchen window in Holland that were the first thing to poke up through the snow (on the rare occasions we had snow there). Now I’m in Texas, but we still have daffodils. Thanks for sharing this. 🙂

  3. I read this post before going to bed and dreamed you were giving me a tour of a magnificent garden. It was perfect, except that there were these weird, giant asparagus spears everywhere and I kept stepping on them. 😉

  4. Yay! I’ve been wanting to pickle asparagus and have been scouring the stores looking for the best price. I’ve been told though that you can go pick it in ditches along the road. Yay for Spring!
