April Face of Produce

The first few spears of asparagus were ready for harvest this morning.  They appear in the April Face of Produce along with along with kale that overwintered.  The eyes are grape hyacinths that are popping up everywhere (the lawn, the strawberry bed), and the nose is a strawberry from the 2010 harvest that emerged from the freezer.

We enjoyed a white bean, sausage and kale stew last night made with tomatoes from last year. The freshly harvested kale in the stew was sweet and tender, so different that what we buy it from the grocers.  It sure makes those long days in garden even more rewarding when the fruits of your labor taste so good.
