Dairy 2/24/14

 It was a wonderfully warm day. Planted carrots, radishes, walla walla onions, lettuce and some more peas. Top greenhouse is coming together. Happy to find crocuses today. The pollen from these flowers is where the spice saffron comes from. It is also the source of the yellow coloring for the gowns of Buddhist monks.

 Must take a serious amount of flowers to collect that much pollen. Makes the dye very special.
