The First Miriam’s Garden Column of the Season

Sure feels like spring. The weather changes dramatically in just a few moments.


My husband captured these photos of the changing sky.


We expect  in mid-Spring for the weather to  be crazy. Sometimes all in the same day. Still things are beginning to happen in my garden. Right now, there’s a hot bed full of lettuce plus rhubarb that was doing great until I needed it for a pie.



There are tomatoes, peppers, and herbs are in pots in the laundryroom-greenhouse. Besides that, it’s all about sprouting and waiting in Miriam’s Garden.



Just before the James Beard Foundation Awards, when I was in New York City. I took a stroll through the Greenmarket with Italian cookbook author Michele Scicolone. Her new book is “The Italian Vegetable Cookbook.” Michele loves leafy greens, which were in abundance. She picked out her favorites and told me how to use them.

She’s featured in my first Miriam’s Garden column of the year, from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Please click to read more:
