Signs of Spring

Spring is arriving.  Slowly.  Rhubarb is growing, garlic too.  The spring wildflowers are just beginning to create a carpet across the forest floor.  Spring Beauties, Blood Root, Dutchman’s breeches are all flowering in the woods and the bright yellow Marsh Marigolds line the stream bank.  Soon the trillium will take over.  We’re anxious to get in the fields but so far the wet cold weather has dictated the taking on of other tasks.  We’re building a new hoop house, finalizing field plans, getting equipment in order and of course tending the greenhouse. We purchased a new grain drill for planting cover crops this spring.  We’re pretty excited about it!  The size is a perfect fit for our garden beds.

With much anticipation and hope for the growing season,

Mike & Patty
