photoblog image Asparagus Day

Asparagus Day

I took lots of shots but this will show the fun of asparagus day. Strangely the fronds did not turn their bright yellow colour this year as usually happens in fall.  The autumn's above normal temps had most to do with this, I suppose.  Anyway, asparagus cutting did not get done till 24 December this season and you can see in the bottom photos, the brown rather than bright yellow asparagus fern. The top photo is enhanced.

 

Our temps were around 10 degrees on the island with 13 in our area on Christmas Day. It was wonderful!

Your cats are having wonderful fun!
Mary MacADNski: They enjoy this ritual and it makes the annual chore more fun for me too.
It seems that cats have been more fun. Asparagus, we have a different aspect, perhaps because I refer to those grown
Mary MacADNski: With asparagus, only half of the crop is harvested. The other half must provide the nourishment for the parent plant to produce the next year. I usually cut this down in the fall because it catches snow in winter. This is an annual tradition for the cats.
The asparagus is giving them some sort of high
Mary MacADNski: Not at all. They think they are hiding from each other and plan sneak attacks. Pruning bushes of any kind or piling brush will bring the same result. Cats hide on each other in OUR plain sight all the time.
