Spring Time!

I love this time of year.  And I bet you do too!  So many things growing and I know I’m crazy, but I actually like the warm weather!

During the winter we planted a few things and are now harvesting some.  Like our crazy looking carrots -


aren’t they  weird looking.

And this kale tastes DELICIOUS! 


If you have never had kale you should try it out.  Our favorite way to have it is tossing it with a little olive oil, a little lemon juice, then salt and pepper, place it on a single layer on a cookie sheet  and baking it in the oven at 425 until it is crispy and starting to brown (maybe 15 minutes or so).  So yummy!

Our herbs are doing really well.  Did you know that cilantro makes this pretty little flower?  I didn’t.  I love it.  It smells really good to.


Our oregano is growing like crazy.  So I threw some on the dehydrator,


and now have my own little bottle of dried oregano.  I think I might make some of these up to give as teacher gifts. 


Happy Spring! And Happy Easter!  Someone shared this song on Facebook the other day and I loved it.  Hope you enjoy it too!
