Your Guide to Spring Veggies
Hello everyone! It's been a while since I lasted posted. After putting the garden to bed for winter I also went on hiatus, but it's good to be back! There is a lot to do for Spring and one of the thing I'm excited about is planting and harvesting Spring produce. I created a list of garden greens that are in season right now. If you purchase your grocery from the farmer's market look for these veggies. Also, if you plan to grow any of these in your backyard go with the spring onions!

These are some of my favorite vegetables. All you need is to throw in asparagus and Brussels sprouts and you've pretty much got them all!

I still don't like the taste of raw spring onions but I don't mind having them in soups

Among all the veggies, zucchini is my favorite. You can pretty much grill it, use it in soup or in pasta.
