But it also brings many delicious spring offerings too like:
Fresh lettuce, asparagus, greens of all kinds, new potatoes, radishes, berries, fresh milk and eggs!!!!!! Oh my!
Our "spring" offerings are a little late this year due to all our cool, cloudy days, but this week everything has started to come off at once it seems, we've had all of the above in varying amounts of abundance. With the hens still laying well and the baby goats weaning so we are getting more milk, we have been using milk and eggs in (just about) everything, and the greens are coming off like they always do, (despite the cool weather other garden plants dislike), no way we can eat them all as quickly as we pick them! So into the freezer they will go. A quick blanch in boiling water, a quick dip in cold water, drained and packaged in a quart zip-lock they go into the freezer to await the winter time when I add them to just about every soup, or pasta sauce I make, they are a very welcome addition to hearty winter soups (and a good way to sneak a 'green' into your supper for pickier eaters!)
Fresh greens boiled with a pinch of salt a pinch of sugar and
topped with a dab of butter and a splash of vinegar
Served with boiled and buttered new potatoes
Now that tastes like SPRING!
Y'all come back now, ye hear?
