Happy New Year Asparagus Lovers

Asparagus in the Spring

We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to a New Year full of promise. We are looking forward to the spring because it is such a lovely time of year as well as heralding Asparagus Season. In order to keep you in an Asparagusssy mood all year around we aim to produce six editions of our Asparagus News in 2014 as follows:

1. This New Year Edition

2. Early Spring - Focused on advice for those who grow or plan to grow asparagus and the upcoming season

3. Easter - Hoping that the season will have got underway we will bring new recipes, seasonal gardening advice and any news we can gather about the season ahead.

4. High Season - We'll keep the recipes rolling, look at ways to make the most of an asparagus glut and bring you all the asparagus season news as it happens.

5. Autumn and 6. Early Winter editions will focus on making sure the asparagus growers amongst you keep your beds in order to ensure the best growth in 2015 and we'll look at ways to use your stored asparagus and ideas for the holiday season ahead.

New Year Party Food Ideas

New Year is a day or so away and if you are needing some inspiration with your catering we hope the following links will help you out.

For great finger food or a classy starter try making these Inidividual Tarts filled with Asparagus, bacon and stilton.

One of my favourite easy party recipes is Roast Asparagus with Smoked Salmon. Simple, sophisticated and very very tasty!

A Look Back at 2013

We were taking a look back through our face book page yesterday and had already forgotten some of the great posts we had shared during the year. It seemed like a good time to share a couple of photos from 2013, at this time of year it does us good to remember what a warm sunny summers day is like!

We took a day out at Asparafest and the weather was gorgeous.
