“April showers bring May showers” is what my son Oliver has recently declared…which seems fitting on this official May Day morning of rain. What he really meant was “May flowers” but that is only part of what makes May such an exciting month. This month kicks of the start of our local CSA- Horse & Buggy Produce and boy did they start off with a bang. Our first visit includes local asparagus & strawberries, 2 of my personal favorites. Not in season for long I get my overload of asparagus via eggs, soup or just simply grilled or roasted. Strawberries taste best to me when you just pop them in your mouth (after you wash them of course) and since their season is so short lived I am enjoying the overload. This is what I love best about spring, the season of new flavors and new sights.
