Spring arrived tentatively this year, but it feels like we’ve really turned the corner now. The grass seems to have greened up over night and lots of seedlings are breaking through the soil.
The peas and fava beans are all up and growing. This is my first time growing favas and I’m really excited about them. When I lived in New York I used to get them from a lady at the Union Square farmers market but I never see them at the markets here.
The garlic seems to be taller and greener every day. I’m so looking forward to having fresh garlic to eat. I’m at the end of last year’s supply and it’s looking pretty sad.
What I’m most excited for right now is rhubarb. I just can’t get over how much it grows every day. In a few weeks I’ll be enjoying stewed rhubarb with my morning yogurt. I can’t wait!
