Field Notes. The days are getting longer and now we are in daylight savings time. I still have not figured out how to "save" daylight, and would prefer to just leave the clocks. The animals here are sun, not time driven. And I am no exception. But "springing ahead" is yet another sign of the nearness of spring.

It is EGG season here, and we have them. You can call and add to your box or get an eggstra egg share - sorry it was just to tempting! We also have sauerkraut straight from the crock.
From the Kitchen. While Loring was here he ate eggs and vegetables! In a dutch oven I sauteed onion, added sauerkraut and topped with pork chops I had rubbed with herbs and browned - baked the combo at around 300 for about a half an hour. I used the meat drippings to make a gravy for boiled potatoes. And I boiled and slipped some beets, sliced them and placed in olive oil and butter and crushed fennel.

And I made custard to go with thawed strawberries for break and dessert.
