First Greens of the Season!

 

The first greens of the season were devoured by Maine Man this past Friday the 13th. If I remember correctly, last year we ate our first greenhouse greens on April 12th. Tomorrow night I plan to make up a tasty salad with with some homemade dressing after being inspired by this post. I will make it with “Artison” extra virgin olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar I recently purchased from a local market. Maybe I’ll post a recipe if I come up with a good one.

I’ll end this post with a few things I am thankful for this weekend…

  • warm weather
  • long hikes
  • neighbors that are like family
  • my bee suit
  • spring peepers
  • kids that care
  • my hard working man
  • chores that provide me with time to reflect on all I should be grateful for

Spring Peepers are definitely a blessing. Glad I am not the only one who thinks so.

Yes, spring peepers. Was outside at dusk and it felt like summer listening to those guys in the pond! Stevie@ruffledfeathersandspilledmilk.com

Impressive greens, but we have no such love popping up in Aroostook County as of yet... So sad. The peepers though are here with a vengeance! And how happy they make me.
