I am getting excited for winter to be over. My husband bought fresh spinach for me instead of the frozen I thought he would buy. We have been really enjoying it! I made a dish today that I just love - it has spinach, chicken, tomatoes and rice as the basic ingredients, but I think it is the spinach that really pulls the dish together. Anyway, as I was making it, and the later eating it, I was thinking that it would be nice to try the dish with turnip greens. Then I go to thinking about how great a turnip is! You eat the turnip, the bottom part, but you also can eat the leaves that grow out of it! I'm excited to try this come spring. I also think I'll plant spinach in my garden because it is so very good when it is fresh.
I think I'm going to have to expand my main garden to include the blueberry bushes and give me more room to plant other vegetables. I may have to re-plant a couple of my blueberry bushes so they don't come as far as they do; we'll see. I've got a bit of time before I do any of that MAJOR work.
Only a few more weeks and I should be able to see my crocuses peeking through the snow. I'm so glad I planted them. I might have to do a few more this fall. After the crocuses pop up, it will only be a matter of weeks before the tulips and the hyacinths show their pretty green buds.
