Happy Monday! It is day 1 of spring break, and I wish I was filling you in on the progress in the gardens, the sprouts shooting through the soil on their way to becoming part of our farmhouse meals. I wish I had photos of sweet lambs playing in the sunshine, chicks running around on the lawns – well, you get the picture.
Alas, that is not the case today. You see, there is no sunshine. No warm breezes, blooming gardens, sprouting vegetables. The lambs dislike the rain, it is too cold for the chicks to be out. Basically, it simply doesn’t feel a lot like spring.
That being said, I am happy to say that my favorite produce store – Yakima Fruit Market – is open again. They close every year from Halloween until March. I am always so happy when they re-open as it means spring is coming. They have a large covered area – thank goodness – that is filled with spring flowers, vegetable starts, and LOTS of herbs! I can’t wait to buy flats of all three and get them planted. However that won’t be happening until the damn rain stops coming down. Can you tell that I am over it?
Have a fabulous week mes amies – I hope it is warmer (and dryer) where you are!
