In the dreary depths of winter, starting a blog called May Flowers seems hopeful. The discussion arose today that a clever newspaper column, called Dyer Streets (which I hadn’t noticed until it was pointed out to me that this was a play on the phrase Dire Straits), is named after the columnist, and you couldn’t call it that if the guy stopped writing it. So, after brainstorming what our columns would be called, I very much liked May Flowers, about gardening. Of course I intend to also share about my passions that stem from gardening, namely, eating. And drinking.
In addition to our own gardens (vegetable and ornamental), we also belong to a CSA, and are continually putting up food for about 9 months of the year. This time of year, we are mostly eating root vegetables and stuff we canned. :)
