How exciting, the asparagus over in Rappahannock County has just started to push up. The farmers at the Sunday market said it probably won’t be until next week that they have asparagus for sale. And probably that is true, given that they need more than just a handful of spears to sell. But still, I’m going to get to the market bright and early tomorrow morning to see if anyone’s got a bunch or two.
UPDATE: Asparagus is up over at Bifurcated Carrots, too. Come on, dear mid-Atlantic region, we must be further along here than the Netherlands, right?
SUNDAY UPDATE: Curses, still at least another week to go, and probably more like two. I’ll try to be patient.
