Spring Comes to Tom's Farm

March 22, 2012

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?

I'm Nozlee Samadzadeh, a writer, editor, farmer, developer, and passionate home cook. Growing up Iranian in Oklahoma, working on a small-scale organic farm, and cooking on a budget all influence the way I cook -- herbed rice dishes, chicken fried steak, heirloom tomato salad, and simple poached eggs all make appearances on my bright blue kitchen table. I love to eat kimchi (homemade!) straight from the jar and I eat cake for breakfast.

Oh, my heart. That's the epitome of bursting/springing forth. My best memories of spring are from the Netherlands (as in Nigeria you dont see many changes in the landscape). Its seeing the first signs - cherry blossoms at the base of tree trunks, crocuses and tulips pushing up and just the freshness of the air. Thank you for sharing
