It’s Asparagus Season

Every year there is a British Asparagus Festival in the Vale of Evesham, UK.

Asparagus festival

“Celebrating the world’s finest “gras”. Numerous events and activities will take place during this two month long festival that honours the growing, harvesting and eating of this sumptuous delicacy.”

One of the key presenters at this festival is Jemima Packington, the world’s only know Asparamancer.

What is an Asparamancer?

You have probably heard of people predicting the future by reading tea leaves or coffee grounds. Packington uses a similar technique to predict the future, but her medium is [drum roll please] ASPARAGUS!

She tosses asparagus into the air, and depending on how the stalks land, she makes predictions.


Packington has predicted such stunning revelations as:

  • A Hollywood couple breaking up (cue in Brangelina)
  • Troubling times
  • Major storms
  • Middle East threats

The 2017 Festival dates have yet been announced, but we are waiting with bated breath for the new predictions.
