Kansas weather — it’s minus-2 one day and 60 degrees the next.
We really never know what to expect. But here is one thing that you can count on. In a few weeks it will be gardening time again. This means digging in the dirt, plenty of sunshine, some time spent behind a shovel, hoe, rake and hose.
And suddenly, you have food — potatoes dug from the earth; green beans snapped from the plant; juicy red tomatoes hanging from their vines, purple eggplant; yellow, green and white squash waiting to be cooked up into a delicious ratatouille; mounds of leafy greens, and bouquets of radishes, beets and carrots. These are the things that await you if you don’t mind spending some time in the garden.
