No, not the bread. I’m thinking about seeds and seedlings again. And creative seed packets. After all, it is spring.

I bought new seeds from the Hudson Valley Seed Library this year. I can’t wait to toss the poppies and cosmos in my garden once the soil warms up and softens some. (Come on spring!!)

I continue to plan my garden and cook up seasonal dishes even though I don’t blog about it often (other projects are keeping me busy). But, since spring is easing its way in through the cold, I thought I’d pass along some inspiration to you since I know it’s the time of year when we all start thinking about getting outside and planting again.

I will stop by here on occasion to share what’s got me thinking or giving me inspiration in the way of images and links, rather than content that I don’t have a lot of time to write.





If you haven’t already, be sure and check out these awesome (fairly) new sites/projects:

Made Weekly, a visual feast of ideas for any cook

Lark, a three-season cookbook/app you will drool over

Beeritual, craft beer reviews and images guaranteed to make you thirsty


Thanks for stopping by.

    Many signs of Spring here in CA, but I think there’ll be one more snow before winter is truly over. No Dogwoods yet. We do have rose buds and daffodils in bloom, but I wonder if the geraniums will return. The pear trees have started and I’m crossing my fingers for mountain grown peaches this year. It’s been 5! Very happy to see your post and will check back soon for more inspiring words.

  2. Fun to see you’re back…spring must be coming soon!!
    First time I have seen mention of using tree lights for starting – what a good idea.

      Hi Pam—thanks for dropping by! The lights are so easy and provide amazing heat. I am about ready to remove them as all my seeds have sprouted and are ready for just the overhead light. You should give it a try–in 5 days I see sprouts…
