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.
