The Farmers Market started yesterday! I was so happy to see all of the vendors and eager shoppers despite the high winds. I am looking forward to garden season as the rewards for growing/buying locally grown foods is priceless. This is the perfect time to buy Minnesota grown asparagus. Luckily, our neighbor has a patch and has been sharing with us.
Facts about asparagus I bet you did not know:
