If you look very closely, you will see the tops of the asparagus just starting to poke their heads right up through the sandy ground. For my whole life, as long as I can remember, we have had asparagus on the farm. Such a simple vegetable, such a thoroughly tasty vegetable. Sometimes, children don't really like it, sometimes they do. My children didn't care for this vegetable as they were growing up. It might be because their Grandfather gave them the "chore" of hand picking the weeds out of the asparagus patch. But now that they are grown and have families of their own they can bring friends by and family and say, "I used to weed that garden, and we had the best asparagus on our country road." Well time has moved along, and we still have the asparagus patch. And does it make the best soup around? Well, yes indeedy ...just ask Bryan and Mike.
