Anticipation

April 10, 2013

Spring is finally here. Well, it has actually felt a bit more like summer these past couple of days, but I’m not complaining.  Spring produce is beginning to trickle in to The Wild Ramp.  Anything green that comes in the store now is not there for long. We’re all longing for  that fresh from the garden taste that only comes from your own garden or your local farmer.

I’ve been tending my seedlings inside, and have most of my spring garden in.  Every time I think of what those plants will be producing soon, my mouth just waters.  Oh agriculture can be such a hurry up and wait game. I’m particularly excited for fresh fruit. YUM! Well, then of course there are fresh tomatoes, corn, beans, and well everything!

      I think berries are what I get most excited for. You just can’t get that taste any other time of the year. I love blackberry season. My fingers are purple for a solid month! 🙂
