And my column for May, "Doing My Share," is up at Saucy. (It includes a bit about another favorite weed, chicory.) The spring farm share I talk about in the column is from Vermont Valley Community Farm, in Blue Mounds, here in Dane County. The newsletters posted on the site will give you a taste of what's been coming home in the spring share boxes.
Newly blooming: Azalea (oops, lost track of the cultivar--it has tangerine-colored blooms and, most notably, survived the winter!); Lamium maculatum 'Beacon Silver' (spotted deadnettle) and a self-sown "sport" of Beacon Silver; Ajuga reptans 'Bronze Beauty' (bugleweed).
