    We certainly have wonderful strawberries this time of year here in Florida. These recipes look delicious! I just bought a spiralizer to make zucchini noodles, so I am pinning the Lemon Herb Salmon Zucchini recipe. Yum!

    I love spring broccoli. It’s so versatile. We grow many of our own veggies, although our spring growing season is very short. Many typical “spring veggies” I have to grow in the fall. This spring, we will be planting potatoes, lettuce, garlic, and my daughter’s favorite- carrots. Carrots come in so many wonderful colors; so much fun to grow.
