Asparagus!

The family farm next door to my neighborhood has some for sale. I stopped there and got 2 bunches for my daughter and her family and a bunch for me. Oh my, so good!

1. You're so lucky to live next to a family farm

I got asparagus from the grocery store. It's good, too.

4. Very lucky!

The land used to be a state tree farm and the family bought it about 10 years ago. They have another farm, on the other side of town, which has been farmed by their family for over 100 years. State of Ohio honored the farm as a centennial family farm in the last couple of years.

They sell strawberries, blueberries, pumpkins, gourds and now asparagus. I would love to see them offer more veggies.

This is the first year I got asparagus from them, usually get it from the store. Such a treat!

but may be too windy for them to venture out.

12. There was little he wouldn't eat

When we first got married, he wouldn't try things, but over the years he got more adventurous. He loved my cooking, and I can't think of anything I don't like, so it worked out.

He passed away in 2017, and sometimes I make meals like this, all for me!
