The evening sun was shining on the surrounding hills, a gentle breeze was fluttering through Dave’s newly erected bird scarer streamers and the red kite was watching us from above. One of those perfect moments and a fitting occasion for the first, and only, harvesting of the asparagus for 2010.
Back in the kitchen the scene was set so none of the precious “plot to plate” sweetness would be wasted - steamer on the hob, parmesan strategically placed by the grater, lid off the butter dish.
Mamma mia, that was lip smackingly tasty!
Now we only have to wait another 12 months before the next harvest.
