My beautiful compost heap! It too has been patiently awaiting the awakening of spring!
Patience, patience, patience or so I have been told a million times. It is late March and as I await the arrival of spring warmth, renewal, and rebirth, I am getting impatient. Impatient for something new, some sign of life from the garden, something edible. I simply love to eat with the seasons, and especially what I have grown myself, making this an extraordinarily hard time for me. A time where great patience is needed, but is in short supply. I dream of the coming days of going out into the garden or stopping by a local farm and picking what is on the menu and then creating a recipe with the results. It is a lifestyle change, after winter, that my mind, body, and soul craves. Patience and a life lesson learned, after a long winter comes a fabulous spring!
