  • Grays Harbor Public Market News – Easter Egg Edition

    Easter comes early this year, but I feel as though I’ve been anticipating it for a long, long time! Perhaps this is because the Daffodils have been out for several weeks, and the Tulips and Trilliums are finally here to keep them company? We have scads of Daffodils and Tulips now, and the Trilliums have finally made their appearance just in time for Easter. The wild Johnny-Jump-Ups are showing nicely now. Truth to be told, they are my favorite of all the Spring flowers. Not only is their name cute and endearing, but the bright little yellow blossoms pop up out of nowhere and last for months. We have a few favorite places to visit where the JJU’s thrive in incredible abundance- usually on an obscure and almost abandoned back road with a swampy shoulder. Perfect for an afternoon bike ride!

    Easter is full of traditions, and if you grew up in the Western Hemisphere, you have probably colored a few Easter eggs in your youth! Do kids still do that??
    There has never been a time in my life when eggs were scarce, but then- I have lived in a blessedly rich country in a bountiful time. Chickens do not enjoy winter any more than we do, and their egg-laying schedule slows considerably during the cold months. As the weather warms up and the daylight increases, they begin to perk up and take notice. More eggs appear, just as Easter approaches. Do you see a coincidence here? If you were living during the 1200’s, scraped your way thru a long cold winter trying to put food on the family table, and suddenly the miracle of new life and a new season brought an abundance of fresh eggs, you’d have been so thrilled with that bounty that you would be serving eggs with every meal! They stay preserved longer when hard boiled, and perhaps, on a whim, you decided to boil them in the same water that the beets had been stewing in. Wow!! Reddish-pink eggs!
