Raised beds

Asparagus

So today I had a nice surprise when I went to water the raised beds. Our first tiny tip of asparagus peeping through the soil. Now apparently you’re not supposed to pick asparagus the first year, you should just let the folliage grow and the roots establish. Which is all very well and good but the idea of homegrown asparagus with home laid poached eggs is awfully tempting. I mean how much harm could picking the odd spear do? Maybe I’ll just wait and decide once some more have appeared.
