According to Meisterkoechin in Vienna (only German), the asparagus season is over. This is a relief because there are times when it seems to be the only topic of conversation among Germans here in Franconia. German asparagus is pasty white and they try to slaughter it before it sees the light of day. As a result of the growing method, it apparently has to be attacked severely with asparagus peelers.
