Apparently, it's asparagus season!
Asparagus is great because it can grow basically unattended. The problem with that, though, is that I forget to check on it.
And, it can go from perfectly-ready-for-a-dinner-sidedish to a soon-to-be-full-fledged-fern-frond in a matter of days. This stalk looked like the one in the first picture just 2 days ago. Then, I thought I'd wait another day or so to let it get a bit taller. And, I forgot about it. Now, that it's branched out, it's too far gone for dinner. Oh, well. There are more coming up all around it. Hopefully, I'll remember to check in on them more often.
