Asparagus

Asparagus is now in season. My asparagus beds had become overgrown over the winter.

Pretty much every bed in the garden is overgrown right now. I am taking a few beds at a time to clean up and get back into shape.

Saturday, I was able to clean out the asparagus beds and even get enough asparagus to share with my husband for lunch. Once the beds were weeded, I covered them with a deep layer of oak mulch to prevent more weeds from growing.

I cooked the asparagus the Martha Stewart way:

Use a frying pan or saute pan. Add enough water to the pan to cover the amount of asparagus you have available. Bring the water to a boil and add the asparagus. Boil for 5 minutes or until tender. Remove from water and dry on paper towels. Add butter, salt, and some fresh lemon juice.

DELICIOUS!
