The year started off with a bang. As our trees broke bud this spring, we had some cool damp weather that lingered for a couple of weeks. As a result the Anthracnose disease was out in full force and attacked many plants. The first calls coming into the office were from homeowners seeing leaves dropping from their ash trees. Ash is very susceptible to this disease and will abort severely infected leaves. Fortunately, ash trees have been through this problem before and they begin the process of producing new leaves.
This week, I thought I'd do some real Minnesota recipes, along with some fact and fantasy. I promise I won't do any lutefisk, though! Paul Bunyan's Split Pea Soup Paul Bunyan sent one of his cooks to a nearby town to get a wagonful of split peas. On the the journey home, the wagon broke and spilled the full load of peas into a lake. To make the best of the situation, Paul threw 300 hams into the lake and then built a big fire around it. Dozens of cooks paddled around in rowboats to keep things from scorching. After a few hours, it was ready--a lake full of split pea soup!
