Frost variables: asparagus

Asparagus frosted on the hoof

The promised frost did hit our piece of the planet earth in the wee hours, and I’ll be having translucent asparagus with lunch, since I didn’t get them picked yesterday. The color was just gorgeous as the sun shone through the stem. Little guys, like the one on the right, and pencil-thin specimens, like the one on the left, made it through okay.
