Ah, home sweet home. It's nice to be back after my long, productive trip. Spring has welcomed me with little speckles of green dotting the woods...
...the apple trees are budding (we hope we get fruit this year; last year a hail storm stripped the tender blooms from their stems)...
Violets wait patiently for me to harvest them to make jelly (my favorite).
Johny's already eaten several dandelion salads.
Johny tilled the garden with our friend Ronnie, spread horse manure,
He also discovered a new wild edible (to us, it was here before we were), field garlic (wild onions).
Hunting and eating wild edibles is one of our favorite things about this time of year...soon the morels with their uniquely patterned skin will be popping up, and ramps too. I came back just in time, welcome spring!
Thanks for reading my blog, see you tomorrow,
