The asparagus bed in our school garden has been producing like crazy!  We’ve been eating it all month, I think we’ve harvested about 40 pounds.  The kids love to eat it raw, or sautéed in a little olive oil with sea salt.  They can’t get enough, which is good, because those tender spears keep right on coming.

We had a visitor to the garden who remembers planting the asparagus while in Mr. Phelps’ class, way back in the 90’s.  We’re guessing that this bed is over 20 years old!  That’s what makes old gardens like this so beautiful!  The legacy of past students, feeding the next generation.  Thank you, Mr. Phelps, we’re loving it!
