We finally made it to pick asparagus! It was so much fun to pull our food straight from the ground. Tonight we will make soup from the beautiful stalks because the girls snapped them up quite a bit in their enjoyment. If you live in the Lawrence/KC Metro area you really should head down to Pendleton's Country Market and either pick-your-own or purchase some already picked.

Let me just say that if you do any kind of pick-your-own with children make sure it is not during a time when they are still trying to grow new plants. Your less than two year old will not understand about measuring the food before picking. Our local farms have an end of season free for all that we will be sure to attend next time.
