Spring in Full Swing!

Here in Shreveport it is getting hot! Most of the wild spring greens we love are gone now, but we are making due 😉

We are also growing lots of plants this year. And collecting fruit trees 🙂
This is one tiny part of what we have going on here, but I love this recycled chest planter. It has tomato, two types of hot pepper, two types of basil and purslane.

Mulberry season is in full swing, too! We are so lucky to have red and white ones growing all around here!

  1. I’ve got 3 -5 mulberry trees in back yard. I need to pick them, how many did it take to make a glass full? What else did you put in the smoothie besides Mulberry and bee pollen? Thanks.

    • Hi! For this smoothie, I used about one large handful of fresh mulberries, one frozen banana, coconut butter, greens(I used dandelion and purslane ), spring water (nut milk would be good, too!) and topped it with bee pollen.

  2. First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your
    thoughts before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing
    my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing however
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Kudos!
