Happy Asparagus Day!

Okay, it was last week, but the growing season always starts later in Caithness; and Fiona Talkington was under the impression on Late Junction that it started today.

Whilst others were celebrating May Day by jumping into the spinal injuries unit, I was quietly planting asparagus crowns. Not for 2010, but ready for 2011.

Tomorrow it will be onions, and the smells of spring are wafting into Thurso with cut grass and animal sillage..

    I might need some of that on my hands, after rummaging through the nettles today whilst weeding.
