Off For A Few

Fog covers the valley floor as patches of frost remain visible upon this morning's hillside. We are off for a few days, having been invited to join some friends and do a little biking.

But first we must gather and pack those planned menu items. Exciting is the first pick from our raised beds, a fresh garden salad which will accompany our evening meal: spinach, mesclun, black seeded Simpson lettuce, radishes and a touch of cilantro. The color, the shades of green, all magnificent! And as my brother would say, so good and so good for you.

Tomorrow will be May 1, a new month, and we wonder about the swiftness in which the previous four have passed.

Have a wonderful weekend and hopefully we'll have some fun photos to post next week upon our return.
