Letting the Asparagus Sing….

West Cork Asparagus taking centre stage…

Red Door Foodie


Whilst whizzing around Fields Supervalu in Skibbereen to pick up a few supplies for the weekend I couldn’t resist picking up a bunch of local asparagus. Grown organically down the road in Ballydehob, Gra produce a beautiful early Irish Asparagus without chemicals. And yes, it certainly was more expensive, but there’s a very good reason for that. It tastes blooming gorgeous.

We spent a whole day in the garden starting work on the strange looking art installation that will be our outdoor kitchen no less. Expect much speculation in the townland! I finally put my very productive, but now going to seed Kale out of its misery and it was dispatched to the compost heap with due ceremony. The raised beds are ready for French beans, leeks, cavola nero and yet more kale. I have hopefully deterred whatever was nibbling my broad bean seedlings with sharp and spikey bamboo skewers.
