As usual, the asparagus is ready for cutting before the Farmers’ Market begins and the price of gas is not yet keeping Milt Westlake away, so, beginning Thursday, he’ll be parking his truck at G & L Auto Repair from 11 a.m. to about 1:30 (or until it’s gone–the asparagus, not the truck).
G & L is on S. 4th across from Sullivan’s. Mr. Westlake will be there every Thursday in May. Last year asparagus was $2.25/lb. as it had been for several years but the price of fuel has probably driven that up a bit–and it’ll still be worth it [Update: It’s now $2.50]. Sometimes he has onions, new potatoes and other goodies, too.
