Hi Allen, 

Wish I were in your gardening shoes these days -- the only
thing blooming in my yard are crocuses -- I've been saying
that for days! It will be 6 more weeks before any young veggie
plants show up in the nurseries. Nothing but pansies for sale...

I'm still voting for my Korean pickles (called Kimchee Oy, or
pickled cucumbers) as my favorite. They're "new" type, hot, 
crisp and savory -- only problem is that they can't be made
more than a week ahead of eating. 

Do you raise daikon, the large, white Oriental radish? In fact, 
we have a problem with all radishes -- they get attacked underground
much of the time. In the same area, onion sets grow picture perfect,
and get harvested as scallions. 

Rain here for Easter Sunday, plus a thunderstorm or two. And of
course, more wind.  Funny thing, though -- the U.S.mailmen are
wearing shorts! They'll look pretty funny if it decides to sleet.....
