“Waiting for Asparagus”

Greetings Fellow Gardeners,

I’m reminded of this garden notion every March. Waiting for Asparagus, is a chapter in Barbara Kingsolver’s book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. Her book takes us on a modern day journey of homesteading, and trying to live off the land. Her story begins in late March, when asparagus is the first crop to make an appearance. Kingsolver calls that time when we yearn for the first fresh produce of the year “Waiting for Asparagus.”

The old asparagus in my garden is now fairly few and far between because the Peonies have taken over. And so I am now “Waiting for Peonies”
