The first crop of the year

A year ago on the vernal equinox (first day of spring for all you non-science nerds), this was the scene in my yard.
That is my yard swing and yes, that's about 5 feet of snow.


2012 is a little different...

This year, on the first day of spring, we harvested our first crop!  

Egyptian or walking onions are already up and at 'em.  We eat the greens as green onions all summer long.  This time we ate them on frybread tacos (it was bread day).  Oh my!  What a burst of fresh and spring time!!

These delicious chives will go on scrambled eggs, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, oatmeal.  
 Just kidding about the oatmeal...maybe...I love the first taste of spring so much, I'm tempted to put them in everything!
