Here's what the first asparagus of the season looks like, picked Monday, April 20, 2015.
And here's what the begger of the first asparagus of the season looks like. When an asparagus is THIS fresh, it's actually pretty good raw. And considering how much rain we've had, this sucker practically dripped with every bite. While the flavor was good, the extra juicy/slime was a bit off-putting for me when eating it raw, so the dogs got more than 2/3 of it probably.
