Getting back to the garden... and back into the kitchen.

...And Sow It Begins
The ground is still snow-covered and the snow is still ice-covered, but I need to see something green and growing. So I planted some leek and lettuce seeds in flats in my little germination chamber downstairs. I know it will probably be a bit early (unless the groundhog is wrong and we DO have an early spring) but I just needed to begin. I'm sure you know what I mean. There needs to be some sign of the possibility that we will have a spring this year. Sigh...
For 32 years my husband and I ran a small retail garden center in Ohio. We keep a flock of chickens for eggs, and we make our own wine from kits and from fruit that grows on our 8 acres. In the spring, summer and fall you'll find me outside in my gardens, and in the winter I'll be inside, cooking, baking, working on my scrapbooks or reading.
