Sweet taste of spring



In a corner of the grounds of my daughter's school is a patch of miner's lettuce. Today we noticed the first succulent leaves, which are like butter lettuce, only thicker. My kids love them, and they otherwise avoid anything salad-like.

Here's our friend Jane, foraging for greens.

Can it really be spring? I'm afraid to get my hopes up only to be disappointed, but the bulbs in my yard are agreeing with the miner's lettuce at Harriet's school!
