Food, Recipes, and Photography — Pinch My Salt
As if the scent of roses, lilacs, and orange blossoms wafting around our yard hadn’t been enough of a clue, the arrival of sugar snap peas in our CSA box is a sure sign that spring has definitely, absolutely arrived. While I know that the weather hasn’t been very pleasant in other parts of the country, it’s been mostly warm and beautiful here punctuated with a few brief bouts of much needed and prayed for rain. It’s actually sprinkling on and off as I type this. It’s one of those strange and beautiful early evenings where the sky is dark and stormy but the setting sun is low enough to break through and brighten everything down below. It’s a striking contrast and especially beautiful since everything is wet and sparkling from the afternoon showers. For the last month we’ve been working around the yard and slowly getting various beds in shape for planting.
