The garden asparagus has been up for about ten days so the road ditch stuff should be emerging before long. It seems to always be a couple weeks behind. I think this is because the garden soil warms up quicker than sod.

Found enough yesterday for grilled asparagus with our steaks last night!! Have only checked a couple of spots, but found a little in each spot.

I find it in ditches,and along fence rows, The stuff I got last yesterday was in a tree row close to our house. I usually mark the spots later in the year when it goes to full bloom and then go back to those spots in the spring. Once you locate it, check back in the spring. They say it can grow up to 10" a day.

Below is a picture of it after it blooms, it sticks out pretty good. You'll see it all over once it gets to this point.

we drive around country roads looking in grassy roadbanks and ditches

look for taller shoots or few spears that have gone to seed to find the bed

best way to find a bed is after its all gone to seed so its easier to see and remember those places for next year

we have several spots we always hit. once you find some good beds they usually produce for quite a few years

just hope no one else sees the path beaten down to your honey hole grin

had my favorite spring meal last night - grilled asparagus, grilled wild turkey breast and fresh morel mushrooms wink

Thanks for the tips guys. It all most looks like Dill weed. I'll have to keep an eye out. smile

Later in the year it will turn yellow/orange in color and it sticks out pretty good.

    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
