A galette of winter greens

i. It is garden-planning season around here. We went a little crazy poring over seed catalogues and, in the recent thaw we had, are doing some initial digging around to make new beds.

The kitchen, however, is one place that is unpacked and has been in use since our first morning here. » Click to read more
