Heather Preston of KIC posted a few weeks ago about her longing for spring and all things green. I found myself envious of her mentioning that seed catalogs were stacked for the season ahead. One of the drawbacks of becoming a city girl is the lack of yard and green space at home.
Growing up, we were surrounded by every kind of fruit tree, flower and vegetable you could imagine in our yard. We’d pick blackberries, peaches and rhubarb for summer cobbler, mint for iced tea, zucchini for my Mom’s zucchini bread and summer blooms for the table on the porch. It took a lot of sweat equity to be able to enjoy the bounty we loved, but worth every effort. Green is Good.
