By this time of year, I can pretty confidently say that I am totally over winter. I don't want to play in the snow anymore, nor do I want to shovel another inch of white water crystals. I want sunshine, flip flops, tank tops...to feel like I live in a salad - you know? A pretty salad with mesclun greens and purple carrots, heirloom tomatoes with pecans, tossed with a zesty citrus vinaigrette. Ok, well clearly what I wanted to say was that I want to eat a salad - not necessarily live in one! But wait a minute - tending my garden is kinda like living in a salad. I love eating cherry tomatoes right off the vine and picking fresh arugula for a quick salad. Come on, you're talking to a girl who grew up wanting to eat salads over birthday cakes! Yes - it's true. I'm delirious from winter and I cannot wait for gardening weather to arrive!! Until then - my garden dreams will have to do.
