Spring is spronging!

 This is what spring looks like here-delicate fiddleheads-picked fresh and sautéed in garlic and butter!




 

 
The garden is getting turned over and we're slowly planting the cool weather crops.
 
 
Our poor duck Mamasita is the sole survivor of 14 ducks, most of whom died from a vicious mink attack, and then the three that were left were hit by a car this year. The crazy thing is that Mamasita survived the mink and then being hit by a car! Now the poor thing is wondering around quacking for her friends. We recently got some ducklings who will grow up and keep her company.
