We've been lucky so far this spring that the daily average temperature has been relatively mild. Our April showers finally arrived last week and the plants have been soaking up every last drop. All of a sudden our backyard is full of blooms! I'm enjoying the flowers and vegetables while they last because I know that all too soon it will be too hot to keep them watered enough throughout the day. We've been using up our herbs and kale but I can't wait for those purple peppers and heirloom tomatoes to ripen up! Send me all your summer salad recipes.
