First Crop of Spring

I donned my kevlar chaps and grabbed the Husky, headed out to harvest the first asparagus.
Last year we bought a few roots, at a crazy price, then a friend asked us to help him dig out his old patch of asparagus- we took crates of the roots home. Now we have quite a bit of the elegant vegetable coming up.
Along with the leaks, a few volunteer onions, and the wild nettles along the trail, we are already cutting down on market bought vegs.

Chernobyl Farms asparagus, evidently.
