OK - the backyard crop is NOT enough for us to open a farm market in our front yard BUT it is enough for Farmer Bill to harvest and for us to eat and thoroughly enjoy. On a whim a few years back, we brought home a few asparagus plants and found them a home in the garden. They grew!! As tasty as they are, is as much fun as they are to photograph after the crop has been harvested. They have wonderful feathery 'leaves' and bright red berries. IF you live in NJ, head out now to find yourself some wonderful Jersey asparagus. You won't be disappointed!!
