It's the limbo time of year (well, it's the first limbo, there's another one around the end of May). Limbo happens when plants first get going, either as seeds or as transplants. They seem to just sit there for awhile, resting, taking a break after sprouting or getting transplanted, and building up the gumption to get growing again. (Once they do get started, they blast off like crazy and you wonder where all the time went, but right now things are sloooooooooooow -- hienz ketchup anticipation syndrome [H.K.A.S. for short].)
ANYWAY, today I was planning to post this Persian Rice recipe (but it was a dud), or the Dutch Baby recipe (it was awesome! I'll post it tomorrow). Instead, here's my garden on April 10th -- in a little bit of limbo (the freaking cold doesn't help, that's fo' shure! Although I can't complain, usually there is still snow on the ground).
(p.s. no pictures rhubarb. It looks too normal now.)
