|The season's first asparagus|
While they are beautiful to look at they are also extremely fragile, and picking them seriously injures the plant by preventing the leaf-like bracts from producing food for the next year, often effectively killing the plant and ensuring none will grow in its place.Our Saturday walk was also wonderful, and as it was the first day of the season for the Farmers' Market, I went there afterwards to enjoy some delicious Raven Bread. As I have mentioned before, the young baker has some of the best breads made from ancient grains I have ever tasted. I snagged this picture from her Facebook page. I bought some of this concoction that eventually became rye and spelt bread.
