Mountain weather refreshes everything
We just had one of those spring mountain storms. The weather turned cold and last night it rained and poured and this morning I awoke to about an inch of snow covering the ground. The sun was shining and soon I could hear the plop and thunk of melting snow falling off the trees and roof. There is still snow halfway up the mountain.
I went up to the garden to scout around and find greens for a salad. I'm so amazed this year that last years carrots which are ususally rotten by this time are still juicy and sweet and I found a beet that was in perfect shape. There was kale and the tender tops of brussle sprouts going to seed. Some cilantro had geminated and there was self sown endive was about a couple of inches high everywhere. So it was fun to see what the garden itself could provide and glean the new growth for a spring salad.
