And here it is, our first taste of spring. The succulent tastes of the mustard greens, arugula, Chinese greens, and baby lettuce. A grated carrot ( ours, put up from last fall and still crisp in storage), some blue cheese, and a light sprinkle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil... Its really what its all about.

In deep winter I can only imagine how it all begins. One thing is for sure... it's slow and steady. One day it's the cardinal's song, then it's a flowing stream, or the wisps of smoke from the sugar houses. This weekend we had a crocus on the south side of the cheese house. The snow only had to melt, and there it was. Sure, today it's covered with snow, but the snow is like a blanket, and by tomorrow when it melts, the crocus will return.
And so it goes. Next week we'll be on to onions and peppers.

I know, because all years are pretty much the same, that the snow will melt, that the fields will turn green, and the cows will be able to lie down on green pastures. Soon, very soon.
