Here’s a photo showing the story on the front of the local paper. But the really good photo of this scene is inside the paper – see the article Noch ist es dem Spargel zu kalt. I wish I’d been there to take that second photo, showing an asparagus photoshoot with numerous walk-on parts in very cold weather, but as I wasn’t, I’m not allowed to publish it direct.
Instead, here is an offer for a reduced-price asparagus plate and matching tongs, so you can pick it up carefully.
I won’t be needing one of these myself. Unfortunately, as reported here every year, we will be hearing little except effusions about asparagus here for the next several weeks.
