a first hint of spring

The first sign of spring for me is the self-serve spinach at the Egers farmstand.  I gorge on spinach for weeks.  March has just begun so I am trying to not get spring fever yet – especially since we’ve gotten a fresh pile of snow today.

But.  I got an email update, the first in months, from the Hudson Farmers Market about their opening on May 9th.  The best way to stay up to date is to sign up for emails at www.hudsonfarmersmarketny.com

In the meantime, winter is not quite over and there are two Maple Weekends later this month.  The website www.mapleweekend.com lists no producers in Columbia or Greene Counties, and only one in Dutchess and one in Rensselaer Counties.  A roadtrip in pursuit of sugar.
