Illusion of Springtime

Posted on

Compliments of our weekly food baskets. Which are changing slowly into springtime items. Like arugula.

A pound of baby arugula. Also known as rocket. Peppery. Fresh. Just the perfect green to evoke memories of last spring. Too bad it’s going to snow tonight. We still think we are getting closer to springtime around here.

Then there’s microgreens.

I swear microgreens are one of those prized items created by farmers. You know, “hey, let’s thin the seedlings and sell those thinnings for major amounts of money to unsuspecting consumers.” I have a garden. I know all about thinning the greens. Still, I do love the intensity of them.

How about lamb?

An Easter tradition in my house. Lamb always reminds me of springtime.

This week, here was the total Friends and Farms basket.

I had the salmon marinating even before I took the pictures. It ended up like this.

With the green beans from my Lancaster Farm Fresh basket. Corn from the freezer, and a cut up carrot.

My favorite thing this week. That lovely ham steak. I am thinking of saving it for Easter. I may be waiting for snow tonight, but there are definitely signs that spring is coming.

I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.
