...wrapping up the winter session of my first e-course, "A Sense of Place," and lining up the spring session (registration is open here!). Look for an excerpt from the course, and a chance to win a spot in the next session, over in the Spring Issue of Rhythm of the Home, publishing Wednesday!...writing about edible flowers, microgreens and sprouts for the Spring issue of Edible Sarasota, and waxing poetic about eggs for the Spring issue of Rhythm of the Home.
...prepping garden beds and starting seeds for my spring home garden, including lots of flowers (zinnias, strawflowers, statice, cosmos, nasturtiums, indian blanket, borage, thai red roselle); herbs (dark purple opal, cinnamon & lemon basils, sage, dill); some new-to-me tomatoes (red and gold currant, green zebra, Arkansas Traveler pink); more leafy greens (baby bok choy, tatsoi, sorrel, butterhead lettuce, red russian kale, rainbow chard); as well as lemon squash, dragon's tongue bush beans, and some hot peppers.
...working with both girls' classrooms to prep their gardens for seasonal plantings. Last week we pulled weeds, and this week we'll plant a Florida-native-style three sisters garden of sorghum, seminole pumpkins, and liana (yard long beans). Next up: butterfly gardens for both outdoor classrooms!
Meanwhile, the citrus trees are blooming, the weather is warming up, the birds are singing loudly, and the kids' spring break is only two weeks away! Spring is blooming here for sure... how about where you are?
