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.
