Spring for WNC
After what seemed like a never ending winter, spring has finally hit the mountains of western North Carolina. I love this time of year. The smell of the air, playing outside in the sun, the fresh flowers and mostly the beginning of gardening season! I am trying not to "count my chickens before they hatch" but I have already planned several summer menus using veggies from my own yard and the local farmer's markets. Today Barley (the big white dog) and I dug in the compost finding beautiful rich soil and come of the biggest worms I have ever seen. Then I made some pasta sauce using my last can of tomatoes from last summer. It is going to be a fantastic spring and summer: food, friends and many outside adventures!
