Week In Review: Spring Fever Hits Hard

Keep Calm and Grow Food

I’m obsessed.  Truly I am.  I have nothing but spring on the brain!  All I can think about is sunshine, gardening, and flowers.  And I’m not alone.  It’s an epidemic that  is sweeping the country.  Everywhere you look — whatever the current weather — people are talking about spring.

For all of you who are just as spring and garden-crazed as I am,  Find Out What Your Garden Name Is!  I’m Poppy Von-Red Cabbage! :-)

Speaking of gardens…I can’t wait to plant mine!  Not only am I excited about getting my hands in the dirt, but I also can’t wait to enjoy the vegetables and herbs of our labor.  Here are some terrific recipes from fellow bloggers that have me garden inspired.

 Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad from Forks Up

Sesame Broccoli from Aneelee

Asparagus Gruyère Tart from Cottage Grove House

Sugar Snap Pea Salad from Caramelized

Home Grown Squash with Tomatoes and Soft Buffalo Cheese from The Single Gourmet and Traveller

Fennel Artichoke Tart from The Salt Tooth

Cilantro Avocado Smoothie from The Celiac Chronicles

50 + Boozy Spring Cocktails from What Jew Wanna Eat (ok so totally not garden inspired but hey…spring cocktails!)

Thanks so much to Fig and Quince for tweeting one of my favorite Rilke quotes earlier this week!  Was so happy about it I had to make my own image for it using some spring shots from last year.

Spring Has Returned

  1. We have spring at last in London too. It’s so great to have sun and warmth again and see everything coming to life in the garden. Many thanks for linking my recipe :)

    No spring here yet but it is warming up and our house is moving along so every thing is good for me right now. As long as there is no more snow!

    It doesn’t feel or look like spring yet here in NYC, still frozen. Last year we already had spring flowers bloomed. This year frozen tundra. Can’t wait, it cannot get here fast enough.

      I hope it does for you! Even here in Texas things are late to bloom and trees are late to produce their spring leaves.
