Springtime is a great time to look through what extras we have in our canning cupboards. With planting season soon upon us, what better time to prepare an Easter meal with those extra items in our cupboard. We thought we would post this now to give you ideas while planning your Easter menu.

We have a little bit of sun poking through, happily melting the snow. Everywhere you go in our local communities, people are out and buzzing with this first sign of spring. In our cold climate though, we have to remember that it is only a hint of things to come and that some cold weather is likely to still come our way. I always like to think of the things that I can still do to prepare so that I am the most efficient during our short growing season. If you haven't already, you still have time to start some seedlings before planting them out. We still have 10 weeks before most plants will be put out in the garden depending on what you're looking to plant. It is always so satisfying to tend to your plants inside when it is wet and cold outside. Here are a few great resources to get you (and your future harvests!) started.
I pulled this image from Pinterest because I think it is wonderful design that can accommodate many different locations and tastes - literally. This design is so simple but with such impact that you could recreate it in your yard using ornamental plants. However, if want to introduce some edibles to your yard, this design would lend itself to this purpose very well.
This could be used as it appears, along a wall, or the design can be used to create a “room” within a garden or yard. If you’re on a budget, the design is simple enough that you can add to it every year to extend it around a yard. Alternatively you can invest in one element each year and build to the final design.
