There's something about fresh Asparagus for a side dish to complement a meal. My Mother has it growing wild in the orchards by her house, I always feel super spoiled when I get to take a big ole bag home.
Apples, I mean, is it even Washington State if we don't talk about apples?! Apple Capitol of the world and for good reason! We get to live in a state with the freshest apples known to man! Let us feast!
May your gardens be forever in good standing and your green thumb thrive!
