If you love Sunday Dinners, you'll get a kick out of this: starting today our very own Tom Hirschfeld will be sharing occasional snapshots here on Feed52 of life on his farm in Indiana. Tom, take it away:
"Spring fever means a bona fide front porch bath. It's a rite of spring (or the first day that is warm enough if March 20 isn't) for us that constitutes a hot bath on the front porch. And because sisters will be sisters, it did not take long for the splashing to begin."
Now that's an amazing family tradition -- and what an incredible photograph. What are your best memories of spring?

This is the sixth in our biweekly series from Amy Pennington — urban farmer, founder of GoGo Green Garden, and author of Urban Pantry and Apartment Gardening — on how to start growing your own food, no matter how tiny your garden-to-be is.
