Green Greek Goddess

The name asparagus comes from the Greek language and means "sprout" or "shoot."
Asparagus is a member of the Lily family.

Asparagus is related to onions, leeks, and garlic.

One of the most popular varieties of green asparagus is named after Martha Washington, the wife of George Washington.

California grows about 70% of all the asparagus grown in the United States.

More than 50,000 tons of asparagus are grown in California every year.

It is on sale at Safeway and King Sooper this week for a great price.

But it makes your pee stink....
Here are a few thoughts on why.
