Spring Into Action

Yep, today’s the first day of spring for those of us here in the Northern Hemisphere.  It’s a blustery start here in Philadelphia in particular.  But I’m very excited nonetheless because it means the start of another growing season full of potential!  Gosh, it’ll be good to get some fresh produce to work with in the kitchen again.  There are only so many rutabagas and potatoes a girl can eat.

In celebration and anticipation of all the amazing fresh eating to come in 2008, Weavers Way Farm has scheduled its first two events for this season.  The first, the Propagation Party (that’s how nerdy we farmers are – we party by planting seeds), is good fun for the whole family.  The second, the Planting Party (and here you thought partying with seeds was nerdy enough), is where we need all the adult helping hands we can get.  Click over here to the Events Page to get more details

I know not all of you dear readers live in the Philadelphia metro area, but maybe there is a local farm near you that could use a morning’s worth of your volunteer efforts?  It can be a lot of fun to dig in the dirt!

    It is quite interesting, the change of seasons. Here in Australia, we “change seasons” on the 1st of the month – 1st March is Autumn, 1st June is winter and so on. And then there are parts of the world that have only 3 seasons, or many more than 4 seasons. Endlessly wonderful.

    Happy Spring! Can’t wait to be reading your Spring recipes.

    VegeYum – Yes, it’s fun to see the differences in seasons around the world. I notice that too when I’m reading your blog or others in the Southern Hemisphere. Well, Happy Autumn to you! 🙂
