Used to grow my own, but alas no-longer, so I'm talking of Tesco's Lincolnshire Asparagus.

This has been the best year I can remember: consumed loads of it. My pee will be pongy.

Do other people notice when you get the sparrow whiff in the same way that they do when you acquire garlic odours?

Yes, I find it strange how it affects the aroma of urine, it's the same when you've consumed a large amount of beetroot and your urine is a bright red colour.

priscus - what a subject, no wonder you put it on handbags.

On a personal note, my wee does sting a bit if I have had chillies or chilli sauce....better leave it at that.....

PS make the most of the Asparagus season - it doesn't last long unfortunately.
