Catch of the day

Today we picked a few edamame beans, some asparagus, a couple of tomatoes and 2 Japanese cocumbers. 

The asparagus ended up in a wonderful meal (spaghetti with bacon, asparagus, and cream), while the edamame will spend the next couple of months in the freezer. 


Asparagus ❤️

Ok, this is not Japanese 🇯🇵  stuff. I planted asparagus 3  years ago, directly from seeds. Last year we had the first harvest and this year it’s just fantastic, they are delicious! It’s actually a very easy veggie to grow as it does not require much care and it survives tough weather conditions. I am surprised that I am the only one growing asparagus at the allotment… considering that it is incredibly expensive at the supermarket
