Breaking the Winter Fast with Spring Greenswith Boscobel

An early 19th Century American household would have used the harvest of their garden to feed the family during the long winter months. But preserved foods lacked the nutrients of fresh crops. The first green edible things of Spring were a real cause for celebration.

Join Boscobel’s Museum Educator Lisa DiMarzo and expert gardener Matthew Weigman in the Herb Garden as they find and prepare Ramps, the harbingers of the new growing season.

To this day traditional communities enjoy festivals centered around the Ramp or Wild Leek whose minerals and vitamins act as a tonic to put an end to ailments and boost health after long Winter months without fresh vegetables.

¡Adiós Invierno! ¡Hola Primavera!

Un hogar estadounidense del siglo 19 habría usado el cosecho del jardín para alimentar a su familia durante los largos meses invernales. Pero comida preservada faltaba los nutrientes de la cosecha fresca. Las primeras cosas comestibles de la primavera eran una razón verdadera para celebrar.

Acompaña a Lisa DiMarzo, Museum Educator de Boscobel, y jardinero experto Matthew Weigman en el Herb Garden mientras encuentran y preparan Ramps, los heraldos de la temporada de cultivo.

Hasta ahora, comunidades tradicionales disfrutan de festivales centrados alrededor del Ramp o Wild Leek cuyos minerales y vitaminas actúan como un tónico para curar las enfermedades y mejorar la salud después de largos meses invernales sin vegetales frescos.
