April Showers…

asparagus for pie at Petaluma Pie Company, a bakery in Sonoma County, Northern California

Brings Asparagus! Did we mention that we have asparagus? Before there was even a plan for a pie shop, we dug two long trenches, filled them with rich compost and asparagus crowns. We weeded and tended them, adding more compost every year and now, in year four of these asparagus beds, we can finally ┬áharvest freely. This warm weather and spring rain are really making them grow. They seem to shoot up 6 inches a day! In case you haven’t tried it yet, have Asparagus, Leek and Egg Pie with fresh dill and fromage blanc from Cowgirl Creamery on the menu these days and very soon we will have other tasty asparagus options for you. See you for lunch!
