I just love it when seasonal produce arrives at market.
This green Asparagus is always eagerly awaited. I don't buy the rubbish Spanish 'indoor' grown spears, as they are almost tasteless. This locally grown vegetable is raised 'outdoors' in good soil, and hopefully in sunshine. It can't be bettered. Whether it comes from just down the road, or from Gloucestershire, or from Scotland; outdoor, naturally grown, Asparagus is without question the best.
The Melon comes from a bit further afield; down in the deep South, I imagine. I 'tolerate' Melon at this time of year, but I prefer to leave it until the height of Summer, when its flavour is far superior.
This was yesterday's lunch. No dashing to McD's or Subway for us; this is how we poor yokels live!
If you have new season's green Asparagus available, take advantage; it's now that it's at its very best.
