So, spring here in the south is a riot of pastels and bright yellows. The azaleas and redbuds are full-on pink bonanzas and the buds on the dogwood in the corner of the front yard burst into flower as well. Camellias are paving the sidewalks with their blooms. I'm walking the dog a lot.
Last night, we harvested out first springtime greens, the salad in a box. This is what it looked like about a month ago:
And this is what it looked like shortly before I attacked it with scissors and threw it in a bowl:
Neat, right? And, I think it might actually result in a few salads from the box - hurrah! We also have lots of romaine in the garden, so we're lookin' at very salad-y spring.
Random side note...our cilantro is really happy at the moment, but one more eighty degree day and that stuff is gonna bolt...how did salsa ever come about? The two most important ingredients don't share a season?!? Riddle me that. Can one save/store cilantro without drying it? Cryo freeze it or something?
