Buttercrunch lettuce! Each spring growing up, my favorite dish from the garden was buttercrunch lettuce salad with spring onions and warm bacon vinaigrette.

Chives! I know it's silly to lust after a garnish, but have you ever given chives their due and made chive pesto? Possibly the best condiment ever. And in my town, chives grow wild everywhere, so that's part of the fun. Walk around and pick some. For free.

I miss mizuna! I'm also excited that the green market folks won't be freezing and wind-bitten for much longer. I recently popped open a jar of beets I pickled with cumin and cloves last summer. That was a wonderful flash of sunshine! http://foodrefuge.blogspot.com/2013/02/pickled-beets-with-cumin-and-cloves.html

I overwintered a bed of mâche in my garden for just this purpose - it's going to make some fine salads this month! My two beds of garlic are up, so it's only a matter of time before the first asparagus. I'm ready for spring!

Favorite part of spring/summer: the first day of fall. Not everyone looks forward to warm weather or its foods! I genuinely prefer cabbage to peaches, sweaters to sweating, mulled wine to sangria. And approach the warmer seasons with a sense of dread. I'm not sure what gene I'm missing. But there are many of us out here who genuinely prefer the food and drink of cold weather.
