Already! Last Sunday, we had a friend over; as we were wandering around the yard, talking about the various trees, I commented that a guy at work already had asparagus. We didn't have any as of Saturday afternoon, so I assumed we still didn't. We wandered over to the garden, and sticking a good 4-5 inches in the air were a few shoots of asparagus! Needless to say, they were promptly eaten!

All week now, we've been able to get about 6-10 spears per day. Nice for chomping on—there's not much better than fresh asparagus, eaten right in the garden. Why destroy it by cooking it when you can eat it raw!?

On a totally unrelated note, I'm convinced that if J.R.R. Tolkien had known about Redbud trees, he would have populated Lothlórien with them instead of mallorn trees...
