That is the wonderful thing about spring: the upcoming gardening season is perfect, with no mistakes in it - yet. It is full of hope and renewal and of ideas not yet tried. I'm filled with a vision of more food than we know what to do with, sharing our bounty with friends and family, trying to find people to please take a zucchini, eating fresh strawberries and cherry tomatoes warmed by the sun, and the rows of colorful preserves that will soon fill out pantry shelves. Regardless of whether it all comes to pass, spring is a beautiful time for dreaming about what could be, isn't it?
Each day as I watch the snow recede a little more, I'm seeing the signs that this new season is finally upon us.
