Springtime in the South

April 12, 2010

The planting begins after a slow start to the spring. But with a wonderful new crop of organic compost, some green sand, and some mushroom compost I am ready for the first crops to begin to grow. So far I have lots of beautiful herbs, some lettuces, and am counting the strawberry blossoms daily. In the meantime, we still have to rely on the farmer’s market and some wonderful Flordia produce to see us to our own growing seasons. Tomatoes are just beginning to go in. I am pleased to bring some early fresh herbs to the tables!  Just for the fun of it, I am adding some smoked sea salt and some Himalayan Pink Sea Salt to the table as well. And I have finally had success in making a creamy lemony homemade mayonaisse, thanks to Julia. Just in time for tomato sandwich season!!
