posthumous pickle party

Fig. 1. Simcha, photographer unknown.

It won't make dill pickle season come any sooner, but please check out this film featuring the late Simcha and Fanny Leibovich and their famous sour dills.

Made in Montreal in 2006, it was released sometime ago but was news to me. It's dubbed in French, but don't let that stop you...

a wild embrace

Fig. 1. Left to right, wild experiments: dandelion bud capers with coltsfoot flowers, blushing ramp bulbs, and fiddleheads with ramp greens.

From faraway forests to nearby back alleyways, spring has sprung.

Thanks to Elisabeth for her gifts from the woods!
