   Surfhut posted on Gardening & Landscaping  Planted Johnny Jump-Ups, salad greens, and a few herbs yesterday. Will abide by the "rule" here to not plant warm-weather plants like tomatoes outside until Easter. My giant taro nigra made it through winter inside just fine and even sprouted 2 (small ) new leaves. SO HAPPY Spring has sprung.

   Surfhut posted on Gardening & Landscaping  Redbud trees are blooming. Lowest temp on a 10-day forecast is high 40's, low 50's. First chance of T-storms for tonight. I'm planting outside this weekend. I feel like a kid in a candy store.

   Surfhut posted on Coffee Klatch  Just have to say what a wonderful time I've been having around here lately. Thank you Joshua, our hostess MsLucianne, the Ldot staff, and every member of this big and sometimes rowdy family. I'm just wondering what Igor has been up to.

   Surfhut posted on Recipes  One of my favorite veggies is asparagus, which is in season and at the lowest price of the year right now at my local store. I usually roast the spears with a little olive oil and sea salt, sometimes with crushed garlic, then splash them with a little lemon juice when they are hot out of the oven. Sometimes grate a little Parmesan cheese on them after they have roasted.

I have a rice salad recipe that includes asparagus. I'll post it if anyone is interested. Do any of you have some good asparagus recipes?

Oh my ... smoked salmon, baguettes, roasted asparagus. I'm hungry!

   Nugoddess  Surfie, if you really like asparagus (and who doesn't? ) Anne Burrell has a killer recipe for asparagus, pecorino, and red onion:

   Surfhut  I have her cookbook and forgot this recipe is in it. The reviews online say it's even better the next day. So I'm making it today and will have leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for the reminder, Nu!

   HopeandGlory  Here in South Central Texas Hubby and I are eating our third harvest of asparagus of the season. We're eating it steamed with garlic salt a little pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice . . . good eating.

   Balogreene  Back when I got $10,000 of bonuses a year, I stopped at Wegmann's on my way home from work. I would buy their pre-made crab cakes with dill dressing and a pound of asparagus. They both went in the oven for a few minutes (asparagus roasted with a little olive oil and a little balsamic ). One of my favorite dinners!

   Surfhut posted on Dogs, Cats & Critters  Speaking of garter snakes: My mother was terrified of all snakes. I vividly remember one day when I was quite young when a garter snake came onto our front porch. A cricket was also chirping somewhere. Mom freaked out, called Daddy at work to say a rattlesnake was on the porch. She made all the kids get into the house through the back door. Daddy drove home for a garter snake and cricket sound. We have laughed about it for many decades.

OTOH, I have a friend who was killed by water moccasins when we were very young and skiing on a lake. He swung out into a nest of them, was bitten so badly that he perished.

Still, snakes are good eco-system-wise. I need to better educate myself about local snakes. If I know they are not venomous, I'm good to go!

   Balogreene  I know snakes are good, but, I trace my fear of them to a couple of things. One, when I was about four, we were playing in my cousins backyard in Houston. My aunt came out screaming, hysterical, we were playing with water moccasins. Two, they are cold and slippery, unlike cute little furry, warm blooded animals. I really dislike snakes. But, if I see one, I leave it alone, they have a purpose, and are one of God's creatures.

   Rollingcow  Snakes aren't my favorite I'm just not afraid of them just respectful. We have timber rattlers around here but they're very rare, my mother used to say she saw one a year, but the snake always turned out to be a bull snake moving his tail in the leaves to make it sound like a rattle. They are great for the eco-system as long as they don't decide my yard is the place to live, I catch them and move them along on their way. I've never found them slippery, Balogreene, more dry really, but I suppose they're colder than a mammal. I'm not likely to get one to curl up and watch television with.

   Surfhut posted on Gardening & Landscaping  Spring is here in OKC. Lowest night temp going forward 9 days is 33. After that, lowest night temp is above 40. I'm busting out my garden gloves next weekend and getting the soil in my little garden and pots ready. Love this time of year.

   Rake King  Let's refer to this a "Prep work", as we are like a charging horse straining at the bit for Spring to completely arrive. I think even the ice skaters are ready for the 70 degree days, as they closed our free park rink last weekend.
