Asparagus

A few days after being weeded, fertilised and top soiled, the asparagus are pushing up in great numbers, despite a lack of rain. Here's a cute baby poking its tip through the dry ground.

Yummy asparagus! Looking forward to being able to visit the market gardens at Palmerston to get our fresh supplies!

One of my favourite gardening memories stems from when I was living in Perth, WA, where asparagus really thrives.

When the shoots were just the right length, we got down on all fours and started browsing them! Great fun.
