Wordless Wednesday: Asparagus

It is “Wordless Wednesday” again!  This first picture got a bunch of likes on my Mom in the Garden facebook page so I thought I’d share it here on the blog.  Despite my neglecting my asparagus bed, the wonderful spears pushed through the weeds and are standing nice and straight.

The weed that took over the bed is a pain to dig out.  One or two asparagus might have been lost in the process.  But most of the bed is clear now.

These two little critters kept me company while I was weeding. At home we call them ladybugs.  Here in Ireland they call them ladybirds.  🙂   Two things I usually have with me in the garden are also in the picture:  my phone (for the alarm to let me know when I have to come in from the garden) and a water-bottle.

I’ve left most of the old stalks to let me know where the new plants should be coming up.  We can’t wait to start eating them!

Happy Wordless Wednesday 🙂

  1. I used to have wild asparagus growing in New England. I would only find it when it had grown too tall to eat. I hope you have a Happy Mother’s Day.
