Asparagus at the Greenmarket
In the dark, wet slog that is New York today, there is a bright spot, and it is green. Asparagus has arrived at the Union Square Greenmarket—the first I've seen this year. The woman (who was huddling in her truck) from Race Farm told me that theirs had just been picked this morning and was the first harvest of the season. Philips Farm also had great-looking bunches on offer.
