Asparagus bed check

      There isn't any sign of the asparagus breaking through just yet but the bed is neat and tidy and the watch for the first shoots in the double rows will be made easier by the meticulously weeded and prepared surface.
      The first stems to be picked and eaten are always eagerly anticipated and there will be a special bottle of wine opened to celebrate the moment. Meanwhile we wait for the shoots of the wonderfully named Purple Passion to pop up.
      A night of Purple Passion in West Norfolk. With melted butter?
      Well you never know.


  1. My mate Goozgog is similarly enthused about asparagus. I don't get it.,it's not that I dislike it, it's just....a bit bland. English strawberries, well that's a different matter.

  2. We worship at the altar of asparagus and purple passion is the best ever. We like English strawberries too. Lovely stuff.


  3. Absolutely love it, like the first blossom, bird arrivals and fishing seasons the asparagus is eagerly awaited - nice with a poached egg! The season of dodgy piss!! Bring it on I say....and the strawbs. TTFN Dickie

  4. Psychedelic pee and the Strawbs. That should be a good evening! John
