|I took a picture of the first asparagus to pop out of the ground at the end of March.|
Since starting my food challenge, it has become apparent how many foods we eat out of season. The asparagus from my garden is finished and I will not have anymore until next spring. I'm sure there are ways to store it, but it is a vegetable best eaten when fresh. Six weeks is usually the maximum amount of time asparagus can be harvested and my harvest time was about five weeks. More food is becoming available and I ate this year's first strawberry yesterday. I'm looking forward to the upcoming weeks and months for a greater variety of fruits and vegetables.
