i just received an email reminder from edible blue ridge editor, natalie, that the new SPRING edition is out and about around town.

oh SWEET SPRING.

i have been found on recent early mornings, bleary-eyed from night shift, poking a finger around in my spinach patch (planted a bit late).  just making sure that those tiny seeds truly are working they way the package (and my friend, daniel – who said, in his eloquent way, “stop worrying.  shit grows.”)  said they would.

so far, so good.  but as someone who has always just gone to the nursery, bought transplants, and popped them into the garden, i am finding myself crazily skeptical of the whole seed business.  my practical side and my histrionic side are in a battle.

over spinach.

i’ll let you know who wins.

meanwhile, get yourself down to one of these fine local establishments:

Artful Dodger Coffeehouse and Cocktail Lounge
Cally’s Brewing Company
Clementine
Court Square Theater
Downtown Wine & Gourmet
Earth & Tea Cafe
Harrisonburg Visitors Center
Joshua Wilton House Inn & Restaurant
Little Grill Collective
Shenandoah Bicycle Company
T&E Meats

and pick up your new copy – full of spring-ness – of edible blue ridge.
