April Mood Board

April quite literally means"to open," and that is exactly what our focus is this month... the opening and welcoming of the new season, and staying open to all the new possibilities...



The forever rewarding, (and sometimes humbling!) germination process of the early seeds we started last month. So many more to come! (We shared our seed starting process here!)


The much missed hum and chatter of people hanging out in the district around the shop. It's sort of hard to describe how it feels after so, so long missing it.  The colder days are fewer and farther between and it's a welcome sight to see people walking around a little longer,  linger a bit more for coffee or ice cream from our sweet neighbors. 


Asparagus, arugula, radishes! Peas and strawberries soon! The return of Spring produce just sings to our farmer spirits (and palates!) If you're looking for recipes and guidance on eating in tune with the seasons, check out Full Moon Suppers at Salt Water Farm by Annemarie Ahearn. She's a return favorite- we've cooked each of her Full Moon menu in their time, and it's seasonal perfection.

Fresh harvest day aromas, captured in these sweet tiny tins.  


The shift of seasons -- in the foods my body craves ( I'm working to listen to her more!), the welcomed adjustment to more evening sunlight, and in our daily routine, as more time and attention is spent at La Luciole.
