National Asparagus Day is on 23rd April for all asparagus lovers to enjoy lots of different recipes which include asparagus.
The website British Asparagus are counting down the days to 23rd April.
Their site is full of recipes, how to cook asparagus, facts about asparagus, where to buy asparagus, how to grow asparagus, health facts about asparagus and videos on asparagus.
One fascinating fact is that ‘Asparagus is dubbed the Usain Blot of the vegetable world as British asparagus can grow up to 10cm in one day!’ (ooh must try and grow some).
On a healthy note, eating asparagus promotes healthy bacteria in the large intestine and can help reduce bloating.
St. George’s Day has also become synonymous with National Asparagus Day, as the date marks the start of the English Asparagus.
The British Asparagus Festival is normally held on this day but due to Covid-19 is not taking place. For many years, Vale of Evesham asparagus has become more and more popular following the success of the famous asparagus auctions at The Fleece Inn at Bretforton. Talks between tourism industry providers and local growers took place to decide how the area could capitalise on this popularity and “fill in” the week between the auctions at The Fleece with other asparagus related events.
According to National Awareness Days every year, the “100 round” – comprising of 120 spears are delivered to a special recipient by Gus the Asparagus Man, together with a fleet of Morgan cars. At his side is the world-renowned asparagus fortune teller, Jemima Packington, Saint George himself and the Asparagus Fairy, together with a retinue of Morris Dancers and colourful characters, all dressed in green. Hopefully all will be back to normal next year.
How many different types of tea are there in the world?
There are over 20,000 different teas in the world, according to Mary Lou and Robert J. Heiss in The Tea Enthusiast’s Handbook: A Guide to the World’s Best Teas.
They also say that Tea breaks are a tradition that have been with us for approximately 200 years, and by the mid 18th C tea replaced ale and gin as the drink of the masses to become Britain’s most popular beverage.
Tea is also a natural source of fluoride that can help protect against tooth decay and gum disease.
They say that ‘getting your readers interested in the first paragraph’ is the key to getting your reader keen and wanting more.
I decided to try something new on my other blog Back Pain Blog UK last month. At the end of the February I wrote a post on what I had posted over that month. It seemed to go down very well so I am writing that on a regular basis and so I thought I would try it on Afternoon Tea4Two as well.
