Many of the herbs associated with the Spring season have a bitter quality to them. This is no accident.
As Spring sets in on upon us and the greens begin to populate the garden you will also find that they share in this quality. The bitter taste is an excellent purifier and perfect for emerging from the cold and dark of winter. It enlivens our system and helps clear our body of the accumulations we acquired through the winter.
So, be sure to get your fill of seasonal leafy greens in the days and weeks ahead.
