When the world wearies and society fails to satisfy, There is always the garden. ~ Minnie Aumonier
The seed catalogs have been arriving almost daily for weeks; the earth and air are beginning to warm.
Spring is near, or maybe even here, and it’s the time when vegetable gardeners feel as though the year has really started.
The picture to the left is of wild arugula (which I planted several years ago), that reseeds itself and comes back every spring, and finds new places in my yard and garden to call home.
I look at it more than use it. Although, it is fantastic in salads and pasta and bean dishes. This herb when in bloom, draws bees and other pollinators into the garden, so it’s definitely earning its keep.
Spring has a way of making everything seem right with its promise of renewal. As we get closer to spring, you’ll find information here to maybe guide and even inspire your spring food garden.
