New Growth for a new year

Do you see what I see? It's small. There's not much of it (yet) -- maybe only four stalks.



Look more closely -- really closely. In front of the shell.


Yes, it's asparagus! It's growing!


No, we can't pick it this year. We need to wait one more year - perhaps two - to allow it to strengthen and establish itself. Delayed gratification can be tough; for now, I'll buy our asparagus at the farmers' market. But I can still be excited!
