It's asparagus season!

In Sheeplands Farm Shop today, newly moved to Hare Hatch Nurseries, we found bunch of "locally grown, freshly picked" asparagus. Twelve plump stalks, held together with a red elastic band, were £2.49.

We ate them steamed, with a little mayonnaise.

For me, the flavour wasn't quite as deep as I had hoped. Perhaps they need more sunshine, a little longer to ripen.

But it's asparagus season, make the most of it while it lasts!
