About Asparagus

By Beth Beutler
1     It was about 10:30 in the morning on a sunny Saturday in spring. I looked out my bedroom window and saw Grandpa out in his garden. I was blessed to live next door to my grandparents. I bounded downstairs and outside to talk to Grandpa, one of my best friends.
 
2     "Hi, Grandpa!" I greeted as I squatted down next to him.
 
3     "Hi, Squirt," Grandpa said, affectionately patting me on the shoulder.
 
4     "What are you doing today, Grandpa?"
 
5     "I'm picking asparagus," he replied.
 
6     I wrinkled my nose. "Yuk," I said.
 
7     Grandpa chuckled. "Asparagus is not so bad. I like how it tastes, and it's an interesting vegetable."
 
8     "How can asparagus be interesting?" I asked.
