I realize not everyone likes asparagus, it is quite an unusual flavor, quite earthy and green. I’m kind of surprised my tastes have evolved to the point where I enjoy it so much, but I think I also enjoy it because it is such as seasonal treat. Sure, you can get it at the grocery stores almost any time of year, but it never tastes as good when it’s been shipped from thousands of miles away. It doesn’t keep well, so you really are best to find a local source for it. I’ve dreamed of raising it, but with two little boys, I’m afraid they would trample it quite into submission. Maybe in a few more years.
