Today has been one of those days that just confirms for me why February is one of the more miserable months of the year in Virginia (dear Aquarian friends' birthdays not withstanding).
How is it possible to wake up to below freezing temps and....rain? The farm road is full of mud puddles, our "parking area" is mud and tonight the wind is howling around the cottage and leaking in through the cracks. I do feel a draught!
While the weather rages on, I've been preparing/prepping a Valentines Day Feast: Wild Mushroom Lasagna, sauteed mustard greens with balsamic vinegar, and brownies with raspberries and vanilla ice cream. The lasagna is divine, although not much to look at until it comes out of the oven tomorrow night, golden brown and sprinkled with fresh parsely and basil. The rest is experimental, but I feel quite sure I can at least pull off the brownies.
Dearest blog lurkers, what are your plants for Valentines Day?
