Asparagus Hunting

LOL I know that sounds so funny doesn't it? Well I never had any idea that Wild Asparagus grew here in Central Illinois. But my friend Danita set me straight on that! We spent most of yesterday hiking up and down the railroad tracks hunting for asparagus. And did we find some! Wow!!!! Here's what I took home with me!

And just look at the size of those stalks! Now Danita swears they are nice and tender all the way down. Nothing like you get at the store and that once I try these, I'll NEVER buy Asparagus from the market ever again!

I plan on taking some to the neighbors as a kind of thank you for all the nice things they've done for me. I know they'll enjoy it, since they just planted their own Asparagus patch.

That looks so yummy! Just wondering what part of Central IL you are in. I grew up outside of Peoria, but have been in CO for 25 years. Heading back there next month. Lori

Welcome to my new an improved blog. I hope you can find something useful, insightful, humorous or just plain silly here. Enjoy!
