Our Katama asparagus is beginning to come in! It will still be a few days before we are harvesting at full strength. By Monday, we expect to bring in about 100 pounds every other day or so, if the weather remains cooperative. Asparagus needs sun to shoot up to its full potential—by up to one centimeter an hour, under ideal conditions.
Here are links to some of our favorite asparagus recipes:
- Asparagus and Spring Onion Potage
- Susie Middleton’s Quick-Braised Asparagus with Dijon-Herb Pan Sauce
- Roasted Asparagus
- Asparagus Quiche
- Baked Eggs with Leeks, Spinach and Asparagus
Our spinach is at its peak right now—come and get it! Soon, we’ll be clearing out its greenhouse to plant tomatoes.
