Grilled Asparagus

Nothing is better in the late spring/early summer than local grown asparagus that has been grilled.  Both mean that summer and warm days are ahead (if they aren't here already).  Plus the farmer's market will start to be in full swing!  I bought some asparagus at the farmer's market last week and had the hubby grill them that night!  Grilled asparagus is good to grill because it is quick and easy addition to any grilled meal.
