Hooray. I think that's very exciting that you're growing asparagus. I've never tried it, I think it's too cold here in the winter for it to survive, darn. You'll have to keep us posted about how it's doing.


that is fascinating, simona. i would love to see updates on how your asparagus plants are doing. and asparagus with sesame seeds is something we'd love to try. thanks for your great entry.


Yes, updates on the growing process, please!

Spring just wouldn't be spring without the bounty of asparagus. The wild stuff I can only dream about...lovely work!


Though the plants take a few seasons to establish, one day, Simona, you will have more asparagus than you will know what to do with! I applaud your gardening efforts; I know you will enjoy the bounty. I love the spears w/ sesame seeds, too. I add just a little toasted sesame oil and a touch of sea salt, but they are luscious with the simplest treatment, too.


Wow, thanks for the great information. I also love asparagus in every form I've ever encountered -- green, white, wild, etc. Best wishes on the success of your garden this year. How exciting to wait for these beauties to debut!


I'm with you, I love them roasted,and I can't stop eating them!Sesame seeds sound good. Hope your garden is a big success!!


I think it's exciting you're growing asparagus, too! Only recently I've learned to love them. Yum!



What a great post. I ADORE asparagus, too. How wonderful that you have it in your own garden! They truly are a harbinger of spring. I'm hoping to get some from local farmers around here soon.


I envy your asparagus patch :)


I really don't know Kalyn, about asparagus and cold winters. A few plants would sure look good in your gorgeous garden.

You are welcome, Bee. I will post updates on the asparagus.

I agree, Lucy. My aunt had a whole repertoire of wild vegetable cooking: I wish I had learned more from her!

Thanks Susan for the encouraging words. Toasted sesame oil and sea salt sound like great additions to the simple dish. I love the contrast of textures.
Thanks Manju. I agree with you: whatever their color, asparagus are good.

Thanks Marie. Indeed, stopping is quite difficult once you start eating asparagus.

Hi Paz. I am glad you joined the asparagus-lover party.

Hi Lisa. I hope you get some soon. Spring is not quite spring without asparagus.

Thanks Maryann. We'll see how it evolves.


Gli asparagi ed in particolare quelli selvatici, per me sono quanto di più buono la natura ci ragali


finalmente è tornato il periodo degli asparagi! Pensa che da Alex sono invasi di asparagi in questo periodo, sopratutto bianchi :-P


Ciao Lenny. Gli asparagi sono davvero un dono speciale della natura.

Ciao Francesca. Sai che non ho mai mangiato gli asparagi bianchi? Certamente sono belli da vedere.
