Oh yes!! It’s time to harvest these lovelies!
I was loving the warm sunny weather most of us got to experience last weekend. It was a long time coming but all of a sudden, BAM!!!! Winter decided to pay one last visit (I hope it was the last).
I can’t let it bring me down though. I have to keep thinking about the supremely delicious dandelion greens I cooked up!! I dug up some great bunches which I blanched and cooked up along with some wild spring onions and garlic. Something so easy to attain for just about everyone.
It really is about the simple things in life….. So let’s all get outside and forage for some goodies. Just google edible weeds and a whole bunch of stuff will come up. You won’t believe how much out there that’s wild is so delicious and good for you. Just be sure that wherever you gather your greens is pesticide and fertilizer free. Oh, and rinse them really good, they’re very dirty.
Please believe me, it’s soooo worth doing this!!
We’ll, it finally happened!!! We are here!!!
My love and I are finally in our house! We were patient and waited it out in our little one bedroom apartment for a bit longer than anticipated but it is so worth it!!
There’s still a TON of organizing (especially the kitchen and master bedroom ) but it is going to be incredible!!!
I nan NOT wait to cook up something amazing in this kitchen!! For now though I think we have a few days of take-out left.
Well, this is it! After 5 years in our little apartment, it has become time to move !!!
The move isn’t far, only about a block away but it’s a move. There’s still a ton of packing to do regardless of how far.
It’s stressful, moving that is. You get to see just how much stuff you’ve accumulated over time and then you decide if you’re keeping it or tossing it.
So far we haven’t done much tossing. I guess we’ll do that once we have all of our stuff at the new place and see if it even belongs there.
I know one thing for sure, I absolutely can’t wait to break in the kitchen!! We’re down to take-out this week and paper plates ( which I only use when necessary ) since my pots and pans and dishes are in boxes waiting.
This is so exciting!! A house of our own!!!
Hmm, what will my first dish be at the new place??? Whatever it is I’m certain it will taste even BETTER in our own home!!!
It’s March and for me that means it’s time to say goodbye Winter!!!
The problem is, this Winter just won’t quit!!! I would LOVE to start my seeds and I can’t even tell you how much I’m looking forward to picking my first bunch of Dandelion greens but as I look out and see ice and remnants of snow piles still hanging on, I don’t think I’ll be growing or foraging for anything any time soon.
That being said, I thought I’d post some pictures from last Spring/Summer to brighten up these LAST dreary days of Winter…
Yes, I’ve been very lazy lately especially with keeping up with the Grapevine.
It seems like I’ve (we’ve) been trapped in a deep freeze and I lost a little motivation.
I’m trying to shake it all off and forge ahead no matter what the temperature may be or how gloomy it still looks out in the world.
So no better time than the present to think about starting to brighten things up. It’s almost time to forage for wild onions and dandelion greens!!! How awesome is that?!!
It’s almost time for me (us) to start thinking about what I want to grow this year.
I’m limited to pots for planting but that won’t stop me! I can’t wait to grow some tasty things and I can’t grow tasty things without my friends the bees!!!!
Here are some things to plant to help our friends who help us EVERY DAY!
I can’t remember where I found this wonderful piece of info but I do admit I snapped a shot of it and posted it right away. So if anyone on Facebook sees this, I want to say thank you and please make yourself known.
I’m just really excited about Spring!!
Please Spring, get here soon!!!!!
It feels like this winter has been going on and on and on and.. Well, you get the picture.
At least there are times during all the snow and cleaning up the snow where you can’t help but admiring how pretty it is! You know, before you’re sick of it…..
So I’m sitting her in these evening hours thinking, maybe a complete hiatus is not necessarily necessary to revamp Operation Grapevine.
Maybe I’ll just keep sharing along the way…..
