Spring has meant an explosion of color around the neighborhood. The flowers and new shoots on the plants feed the soul (okay, I’m not a complete non-romantic).
Since it is spring, we have planted the tomatoes in hopes of getting those delicious fruits for our sandwiches and salads. We have also planted some hop rhizomes in hopes of brewing some beers and flavoring them with hops that we grew. Thanks to trade we do not have to rely on our limited abilities to grow our own food.
