This is an outstanding book from C.L. Fornari. You will be amazed at the gardening myths you have believed all your life, that are completely untrue and C.L. has the research to back up the stories. This is a MUST READ for gardeners!

Encouragement that spring is coming - we're finding morel mushrooms. They may possibly be my most favorite food of all. Oh, wait, gooseberry pie is a close runner-up.

Morels
I'm not alone in thinking "will spring ever come?" Friends in Minnesota told me they had 10 inches of snow this week. I mistakenly bragged slightly we'd had our first asparagus and morel mushrooms. The next day (3 days back) it was spitting snow and raining...
