Spargelsaison, the German season of white asparagus (Spargel), a delicious spring treat we can have here in Missouri too if you grow your own. The German method is to heap earth in mounds around the asparagus to keep the shoots away from sunlight to prevent the development of chlorophyll that turns the plant green. For me 8 inches of mulch or grass clippings does the trick.

    This composition is based on the little known "Rule of Halves" - I'll eat your half and my half too if I get half a chance.

    Yummy!!! Asparagus is one of the few vegetables I like. I have never heard of the white variety. This is a great food capture and perfect for the theme.
