Asparagus - one of the best things about spring

Asparagus, when properly planted, is about as fool-proof as any plant can be. Never had any troubles with red raspberries before, but this winter and the bunnies beat the crap out of them, and while they will recover, this year's crop may be pretty slight. But asparagus always comes through, and how better to celebrate a weekend of early season gardening than to feast on it. In this case, nice young asparagus shoots quickly sauted in a bit of olive oil with green onions splashed with balsamic vinegar and topped with shaved asiago cheese. Oh yes, there was a bit of marinated, grilled lamb and some dilled potatoes.
