Waiting for asparagus

At the beginning of spring I find myself waiting for asparagus. It’s the turning point. When the asparagus shows up then I know the downpour of fresh local produce is about to begin. But the asparagus is holding out on me, and I don’t know why. Everyday I am thinking of things to do with asparagus. I want to roast it in the over with salt, pepper, and olive oil. I want dip lightly cook stalks into soft boiled eggs. Why asparagus? Do you think I don’t appreciate you? I do! I have been eating potatoes, squash and beans for months! Not that I am knocking potatoes, squash and beans. I love all of these things. I am just really ready for tender, new, green things.
