When the moon is in the seventh house
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age
Of a Asparagus, the age of Asparagus
We have impatiently been waiting for the beginning of the Asparagus season. False rumors, broken promises. and erratic weather have delayed this vegetable from signaling the beginning of spring. This Sunday, rays of sunshine parted the clouds and illuminated the blue and gold tent of Zuckerman farms. Hallelujah!!!!!!! We filled our market bag with these spears of spring.
This was our first taste of spring. A ciabatta roll from the unknown baker at 'Marin Farmers Market', breakfast sausage from Angelo, farm fresh egg from 'N.Y. Eggs'(Richmond Farmers Market), Zuckerman farms asparagus, bacon from 'Willow Glen Meats' was dressed with a slather of Lowensenf mustard. This was a Chilebrown breakfast roll that would fuel me to the next serving of Asparagus. The next two months we will enjoy asparagus to the fullest. I am HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
