Asparagus Festival 2011

It's Asparagus Festival time again. Today is the last day so if you want some deep fried asparagus, you'd better hurry.
They also have asparagus ice cream again this year.
And of course the other food booths have all kinds of treats like strawberries and whipped cream.
I like to visit the Asparagus Commission's booth where they display asparagus as it is grown. Here are some spears that are harvest ready.
And here is a bunch of spears in the old fashioned trimming/grading gadget.
And since the festival is all about food, here's a last shot of one of Lockeford Meat's hot links. Yum!

I love that ice cream! I would love to sneak a taste of it! I love asparagus though. My mom use to make a wonderful omlette with diced asparagus. Yum!
