A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to go asparagus picking again. Last year was my first time.

Nothing beats the taste of fresh asparagus, especially when it’s snapped off and eaten raw. I love the complexity of the flavor of raw, tender asparagus–there are slight hints of green bean and pea as well. Or maybe that’s just my palate thinking about other delicious spring time veggies.

While at the farm, I saw the apple orchard in full bloom.

The apple tree branches look woven together like an orchard-sized basket

It’s so interesting the way the trees look like they are almost sculpted into a fence.

Grab a bench, eat some lunch near the apple trees.
