Aspargus time at Corey Lake Orchards!

hmmm, hmmm, good!  Fresh from the fields is what you will get when you buy asparagus at Corey Lake Orchards.  Beth says "call ahead" as the recent cold nights have slowed the growth of asparagus.

These photos are from yesterday and show you the guys who get the asparagus out of the fields on this ingenious contraption built by Mr. Hubbard.
As you can see, we really need rain as well as warmer nights to help that asparagus grow.  Tonight asparagus, pancetta and penne!


  1. I love asparagus. I once heard it takes five years to get a crop.

  2. One of the very few vegetables I won't eat! Funny, isn't it? Most people love it, but ... sorry, it doesn't taste good to me.

    Love the pictures though, especially that last one!
