Despite the recently snow-covered trees and shrubs this morning, winter is winding down. My suggestion: take these final March days to gather all your winter garden thoughts – the plans, the seed orders, possibly the garden journal or collage you pulled together and review it one more time. Then find your favorite cold weather recipe. Hopefully it includes some garden treasure you stored or canned for a winter day. I’ll share some tips again. http://blog.bilowzassociates.com/2009/11/spearmint-secret-ingredient.html It’s a tried and true; meatballs and sauce with a twist of spearmint and canned tomatoes from the garden. What’s your favorite winter recipe that makes snowy days less blue?
This complex weather system may hang with us a bit so best to accept that it is still winter in
New England. Enjoy making snow angels or a cozy winter recipe if you can. As Rabindranath Tagore pointed out, “We believe that mere movement is life, and that the more velocity it has, the more it expresses vitality.” Translation - take these final March days to rest before the mere movement and velocity of spring keep us garden-occupied come April and May.
