Brat.

I got a second asparagus spear that wasn't there yesterday! Beetle-free, and almost 18 inches long! It was chopped up and added to the tuna casserole.

Here is a photo to show how fast these asparagus can grow. Mind you they were not here yesterday, they grew overnight after a little rain and sun. Also
there are males & females. Of course the females are slimmer then the males & are not as bitter. Thought you ladies would like to hear that, LOL

Well, now I know I got male stalks of asparagus.

Today I found another female that wasn't there yesterday. Of course it had a beetle on it.

The Thursday Farmers' Market opened in Putnam, CT today, so Himself and I took a little trip down there. As usual, we were late leaving home. Many things were gone. However, we did get there in time to see what one of the stands was selling wild asparagus for - $5.99 a pound! Since we had just paid $$$ out-of-pocket for one of his meds (guess he already fell into his Medicare donut-hole...) we were happy the asparagus was gone. Got green beans at the corner grocery store for 99 cents a pound instead.

Apparently, plant life does not always mimic human life.

Sounds like Himself was a little cranky. A nap cures that.

Looks good, Joey. How I wish we had wild asparagus growing in these parts.

MsM, I steam asparagus in the microwave sometimes, too - turns out great and keeps that lovely green and crispness.
