Asparagus in My Yard

Talk abut unseasonably warm—I’ve already got 4 spears of asparagus coming up in my yard.  Which doesn’t sound like much, but considering that my asparagus patch consists of three plants and that last year I never had more than 5 or 6 spears at a time and considering also that it’s only March 21, it seems like a heck of a lot.  It seems more typical that we would still have snow on the ground than be wearing shorts and basking in 80 degree temperatures.  It just doesn’t seem natural.

One of my coworkers said it seems like the earth didn’t get enough of a chance to sleep, “and you know what happens when you don’t get enough rest—you wake up cranky.”
