Seasonal Roundup, Spring Has Sprung!

New beginnings are happening all around, and I am energized breaking out of winter blues and into the spring blooms! How are you feeling? I've been outside cleaning out my garden beds and enjoying the sounds of the birds singing.

My star magnolias are always my first welcoming to warmer weather. Did you know that magnolias symbolize dignity and nobility? According to, magnolias symbolize Yin or the feminine side of life. I just love the white, simple blooms that open early in spring well before their leaves open. I am hopeful to keep the deer away from them this seasons, it's been a challenge for me through winter. You see, a mama doe decided to make a wooded lot on our block her home with her two little babies, and they all have been eating plentiful from my butterfly and bee garden through winter! I got a great deer deterrent spray and hope it works.

The days are flying by, and I've got a lot going on with the future site of my cafe under construction. Social Eats Project 607 will be underway before we know it. I'm excited to keep you up-to-date and walk you through the process.

Now, its time to take a moment to do a seasonal roundup of some of our favorites in spring. I always try to buy fruits and vegetables that are in season. Especially because this is when they have the most flavor, and the price is right.
