Spring has arrived! The changing of seasons can always be felt, seen, heard, touched, and tasted in so many wonderful ways, every one of which connects us to this beautiful planet we all call home. Open your eyes, listen intently, and breathe deeply because the sights of spring can be seen up in the sky and down on the ground.
Let’s step outside, shall we?
In spring we begin to hear the familiar buzz of bees as they get to sip nectar from blossoms opens on fruit trees, edible plants, flowering herbs and more. Cherry tree blossoms in shades of pink and white add a cheery splash of color against a sky-blue canvas as the bare branches of winter begin to show life once again.
Green pea shoots begin to emerge from the soil, always welcoming cool spring rains.
Our taste buds anxiously await so many flavors of spring—peas, radishes, leafy greens, carrots, green onions, and garlic scapes—yum! What edibles are you growing in your garden beds, container pots, or farm fields this year?
Let’s not forget that fresh strawberries. Peak season for picking these juicy gems is April through June (depending on your zone). This means you still have time to make your own basket to collect your spring berry harvests. What fun!
