Spring.&#160; Can you feel it?&#160; For me at least, this has become the running joke about the equinox.&#160; For weeks building up to the transition to a new season, we all get very hyped on longer, warmer days and inevitably on or around the calendar day that marks spring, we are pummeled with a snowstorm that hip-checks us back into reality. This week&#8217;s snows mixed with sunny breaks mean that the roads may be slushy, but the good news is that we really are in the home stretch to warmer, longer days, green grass and blossoms. Around here there are a few sure signs that spring is really happening: <ul> <li>Fiddleheads have arrived and will only be here for a few weeks.</li> <li>Fresh greens like watercress, nettles and wild mustard are available again.&#160; These foraged greens are a spring treat!</li> <li>Asparagus is a wonderful spring vegetable.&#160; It has a short season and is best enjoyed young and tender.</li> <li>Easter treats have arrived! Check out <a href="https://membership.theorganicbox.ca/HDMI.aspx?Page=Market_Index" target="_blank"><strong>The Organic Market</strong></a> for a great selection of chocolate bunnies, eggs, jelly beans and our favourite Hot-Cross Buns.</li> </ul> <p class="bodycopy">So this week while you are shovelling off your walkway for the last time (again), just remember that we are short days away from the fresh, spring green that we have all been waiting for is just around the corner, and it will taste great!</p> &nbsp;
