Ah Spring! March 13, 2016
Just the other day I took a whiff of the end of winter air and could actually smell a hint of spring, most certainly on its way. For those of us in the more northern climates, spring arrives a tad later than for the rest. Oh, do not get me wrong, it still arrives on the Vernal Equinox, but it will not be warm on the shores of Lake Michigan until May. Nonetheless, I did smell it in the air the other morning
What is so exciting about getting a whiff of spring in the air? Well, it reminds me that March usually comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb; it reminds me that green dewy grass will be wetting the pads of puppies’ feet; and it reminds me that now is the time of the year to eat spring vegetables just as they are emerging from the ground. We are so hungry for fresh, new, baby vegetables after a winter of potatoes and cabbage that we cannot even wait for these spring veggies to mature before we pluck them out of the ground and gobble them up. Quite frankly, what could be better?
