First of Asparagus

You say it is the 25th of March?  No, today is the First of Asparagus.  It follows closely on the First of Chive, and it is about a month before we will see the First of Pea.

Those two precocious asparagus shoots were steamed and divided between three people, the smallest of whom only nibbled the top of his shoot, like a hesitant bunny.  I reached over to his plate, stole the remaining bit, and ate it.  Spring is very tasty.
