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.

    sometimes mother nature chooses for us what we are going to eat…I’m still envious! Mother nature is telling us to eat up the winter squash and fingerling potatoes in cold storage.
