We've passed the winter solistice and the days now start getting longer. Hurrah!
Although we've had a mild winter yet, the garden is stil resting. Meanwhile, I am enjoying my red dandelion. The contrasting burgundy midribs with the bright green blades are appreciated when not much else is happening. Plus, the red and green goes with the holiday theme as well.
I was apprehensive purposefully planting a dandelion. I am now glad I did for its color and soon for eating. I hope to use the greens in a creamy stuffed pasta dish. The type of comfort food for soldiering on through the winter.
Best wishes to all of you for 2012!
