Spring has certainly sprung as we entered Holy Week on the Island. After Mass, we decided to make a trip out to the farm, to take in the East End in all her springtime loveliness and benefit from the tutelage of our beloved friends, the farmers. The young farmers class had us busy and learning!
As we picked the over-wintered kale (and even spinach!), we were amazed by its sweetness. I picked up a bag of kale in the market and am looking forward to sautéing it in the days ahead.
Making "cookies" with some amazing homemade play-dough...
...and Magnolia sculptures, too!
Practicing our weeding skills by digging in raised garden beds...
...which it is time for me to get back to. See Exhibit "A": Mystery Foe in Our Yard. This weed, which has little white blooms that scatter seeds everywhere, has been providing me with the cheapest gym in town. (Since it completely takes over in a few weeks' time, the price of not "working out" at this "gym" is perilously high! Hmm...) So, in lieu of some of those more sanctifying aspects of our gardening adventures, I will close with a few satisfying blooms we have been appreciating lately at the Pond House:
Happy Spring, Long Island!
