SUNSHINE + WARMER DAYS

This time of year it seems as though everyone and everything that has been in hibernation for the last 4 or 5 months is waking up.

Sunny days – even though they aren’t yet the warmest days – pull people from their houses and out into their yards to begin tending the garden. We check on the bulbs that have been sleeping since the fall, watching the progression of blooms from crocus to daffodil and then tulip. With anticipation we wait for the lilacs to bloom, releasing their fragrance – a telltale sign that spring is here. We assess the toll that a harsh winter has taken on our perennials and start dreaming about new additions to our landscape. Blossoms appear on the fruit trees and strawberry plants, promising us juicy fruit in the months ahead.
 
In our world of local food we are reconnecting with farmers as they begin to once again harvest from their fields. We learn of new and exciting crops being trialed this year and anticipate their arrival later in the season. And, just as reserves of storage crops like onions and garlic run out, the first of the spring onions and green garlic come out of the fields.

Look for signs of spring in this week's boxes.
