Beauty of Spring at the Farm Stand
If you have neglected to stop in at the farm stand this spring, I must take a moment to remind you that you are missing some beautiful seasonal sights, smells and flavors. Admittedly, I have a thing for sweet peas and will plant them continuously throughout my surroundings all spring in hopes of some successful blossoms. I was delighted by the success of some seeds Lee had sown in the past that volunteered some early and fragrant blossoms along the fence line of the farm at the parking area. You really cannot miss them.
Additionally, a perfect harvest of rhubarb is now here and along with the initial harvest of strawberries it is a good time to make some seasonal spring treats with the two fresh ingredients. These are just some ideas to consider when thinking of what to do locally and seasonally with your food choices. Fava beans, asparagus, strawberries if you are early and lucky, sweet peas, lettuces, chard, mild mustard greens...the list goes on and you ought to already know if you receive Evie's emails each week.
Happy Spring, we are moving into summer pretty quick now!
