06.08.07 MYSTERY BLOOM
These peculiar blossoms are the tiny yellow blooms of an asparagus plant. After harvesting about half of the shoots from the asparagus bed for the dinner table, we have left the other half to grow and strengthen the plants for next year. If you look at the photo closely you can see some small slug-like creatures crawling on the foliage. I am willing to bet these are going to soon be asparagus beetles.
