...it's what's for lunch!
This is what I've been waiting for all these months
and it's only going to get better from here on out. I can't tell you how much I've looked forward to just heading to the backyard when my stomach growls, or as a refreshing alternative to our pathetic "I dunno, whaddayou want for dinner?" back-and-forth.
The earliest crops, planted back in March, are just starting to be ready for munching. Lettuces, onions, chives, peppery greens: this is what spring is supposed to taste like:
My little sprouts (this is a new adventure for me!) probably could have grown another day or two but after nibbling on a pinch this morning I couldn't resist tossing a few on top. Crunchy and tasty - I'm super excited about sprouting all the bags of different seeds I just bought.
It'll be a few months before I'll have tomatoes growing here, but the season of cardboard tomatoes is over and yummy organic heirlooms are starting to show up from warmer places.
A little Tofurkey on top (yeah I realize I may have lost a few of you on that one) and it's a super quick and easy lunch in the middle of a busy day. Yum!
Ok, time to get back to work. What goodies are you starting to enjoy, now that it's spring?
