April has been an interesting month on the Unchained Journey. We’ve conquered the hardest few months of a harsh winter, but we haven’t quite reached the abundant variety of spring just yet, but almost!
I’ve been waiting patiently for my favorite spring vegetable to gain a footing and reach for the sun through the wet, dark earth, and it’s finally HERE!
These beautiful bundles were found at The Trading Post where they were cut from a local farm earlier that day. My heart rate increased as soon as I turned the corner….this is exciting news! Before this year, asparagus was a weekly staple in our diet, like apples and bananas. 😉 So, I’ve been waiting all year to eat this crisp vegetable again.
Did you know that once an asparagus bed is firmly established, it will produce for 25 YEARS?! However, asparagus season is not lengthy….so we made contact with Farmer Steve at Nature’s Promise Farm to pick up as much as he can provide us with this week! We’ll be eating it in just about everything in the coming weeks!
