The tastes of spring: fiddlehead quiche and strawberry rhubarb cobbler

After a long winter, we are so happy to leave dried beans and root veggies behind and move on to the flavors of spring: tangy rhubarb, earthy fiddleheads, the abundant chives that are just begging to be divided. We’ve got a porch full of plants, a forgotten fig tree that’s stretching towards the cellar window (weekend project: bring up the fig!), and blossoms that promise a season of fruit. The garden calls! Happy Spring!

My Garden – A Poem By Charlotte

The girls and our final apple harvest for the season

The girls and our final apple harvest for the season

As we continue to wind the farm down for winter, picking the last apples and digging up the last potatoes, Charlotte wrote this poem in her home writing journal. It’s a combination of non-fiction and fiction, she points out. The “fiction” is contained in the last line.

My Garden
My Garden grows
in summer
not winter fall
or spring
when plants die
it’s a bummer
but I remember
just one thing
the plants were
so delicious we
cooked them
in a meal
they were also
so nutritious we
cooked them
with an eel
