Thank you for letting us be a part of your season!
When I began this Organic Fruit and Vegetable adventure on a local farm in 2000 spring took on a whole new meaning. Growing up in an evergreen forest I had never really stopped and taken in all the new life Spring brings. Some of my new experiences at the farm in spring were seeing winter over crops come out of the ground, seeing and smelling the rich dark earth right after first spring tilling and watching the first green sprouts come up from early planting. These things continue to amaze me year after year. Every season is worth celebrating and my favorite ways to celebrate always includes great seasonal foods!
Spring is a great time to experiment with seasonings and herbs. Spring is cool enough to make all of my favorite soups and stews, but warm enough to grill outdoors. This flexibility makes it one of my favorite times to try new recipes featuring seasonings, spices and herbs. If you are looking to be healthier my #1 Tip would be to make sure you are building your meals around nutrient rich Organic Fruits and Vegetables. My #2 Tip would be to learn to use as many fresh herbs, seasonings and vibrant spices as possible to add flavor and nutrients to your menu. (If you haven’t read my life changing experience with organic foods in 2004 you can read more by typing “Organic Starts” or ticking that option on our blog. There are several posts about how we came to LOVE our organic farms and chemical free food.)
