Fever

We are officially suffering from Spring fever.  Anyone who has spent two or more years in Colorado knows they’re going to have their hearts broken if they plant before Mother’s Day.  I believe that our collective resistence to planting too early has induced Mother Nature to extend the warmer-than-average streak. 

“Go ahead,” we say.  “Test us.”  And she does.

So I nearly caved on this bright, warm morning when I found an incredible issue of Country Living online. The ultimate kitchen garden design is feeding the fever.  It has a plan — put together out of ideas from chefs like Alice Waters, Peter Hoffman and Rick Bayless — and it has a list of specific varieties of edibles, seed resources, instructions for scaling it down to the size of your own garden plot, recipes, gardening advice — everything.

This is as local as you can get.  And we love local foods.

To put some “spring” in your step, try this bright, seasonal asparagus frittata with horseradish sour cream – seems like a perfect plan for an Easter weekend brunch.
