What's Growin' On: 4/22/06

Realization Of The Day:

Culinary Newsbite:
My bread baking buddy, Kevin, at Seriously Good in Tennessee, is on an asparagus rampage (and really, who can blame him?). Click here for his mother's mouthwatering recipe for Asparagus Parmesan and to read the interesting history of what I believe is one of the most sublime foods on earth. Then click here for information about Kevin's "Asparagus Aspirations"--a weekly roundup going on now through May of asparagus recipes submitted by asparagus loving food bloggers everywhere. Yum.


  1. Susan,

    Thanks for the blurb.

  2. Don't know if anyone will see this since the post has been here for awhile, but our usual lunch crew here at work were talking about asparagus awhile back, and asparagus stinky pee came up. Some people had NO idea what we were talking about... I'd read a couple years ago about the topic - about how some are genetically inclined to get stinky pee from asparagus, and some might even be genetically inclined to smell or not smell asparagus pee.

    Anyhow, since I work at a university library, it didn't take long before a coworker in the Chem/Phys library came across this and decided to share - interesting article:

  3. Hi Kevin,
    You're welcome!

    Hi Jeph,
    Just rec'd your comment (they arrive via email). Thanks for the link will have to check it out. I def. know about the asparagus stinky pee, LOL. The things you people discuss at work. . . : )


March 2013 update: My apologies for the inconvenience - I know word verification is a pain - but I've had to turn it on to help stop the ridiculous number of anonymous spam comments I've been getting every day. Thanks for your understanding.

Welcome to! Thanks so much for taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love to hear about what's going on in your own garden. I know, too, that other readers also delight in reading about your garden successes, failures, helpful tips, and lessons learned. Feel free to leave comments on older posts!

I try my best to answer all questions, but sometimes it takes me a few days to get to them. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your visits to my kitchen garden!
