Spring teaser

I feel lethargic in winter.  I find it easier to do less work each day and over more days than to experience a true “weekend.”  Some days I even get downright snuggly.  A warm fire, a warm beverage.  This is comfort zone extreme.  I crave heavy, hearty foods like stew and gravy and dough.  I trimmed the extra plants out of the greenhouse tray cells the other day.  I call it giving the greenhouse a “haircut.”  I saved the tiny greens for a salad.  The first fresh of the year besides the kale and collards and carrots we’ve been milking out of the last year’s fall field.  It felt so good, eating fresh again.  I felt so good.  So good that the next day I felt so energetic that Tully and I decided to hike up the ridge behind the house.  I’ve never seen her so happy, I swear.  The neighbor’s motion activated wildlife camera must have gotten some hilarious shots of her as she ran up and down and jumped around in full puppy mode.  I guess that’s how I felt too: like laughter beneath the eyes of the long awaited sunshine.  The rest of the day was spent hanging out with the baby plants—getting back in touch with a part of this lifestyle that I love.  Watching things grow into plants from those tiny seeds never ceases to amazement.  Welcome to spring!
