We have lots of excitement to report, but the sun is finally shining and there are lawns to be mowed, dogs to be walked, Black Locust blossoms to be gathered, and gardens to plant -- so brevity is warranted. We've spent this week marveling at the long, slow blooms of spring flowers and some of our showiest trees, the Black Locust. These beautiful white blooms are edible and delicious, with a flavor that I've taken to describing as "Jasmine Peas." They're featured in our salad this week, and as a garnish on some of our desserts, and we hope to preserve this ephemeral flavor in syrup for use in beverages and desserts as the season wears on. 

Thanks, as always, to you and to our farmers and providers. 

Rice and Beanly Yours,
