Spring has sprung on the farm!

As the weather improves and the sun warms the freshly uncovered soil it’s actually starting to feel like spring on the farm. On the first calendar day of spring this year we were hit with a massive snow storm that left around a foot of fresh snow on the ground.

Spring 2014Since then the weather has shifted and all but scant traces of the white stuff are gone from the fields. Through it all our seedlings have been growing in our warm barn.

Back outside we have a couple of rows of spinach that over wintered with nothing but snow for cover. The plants look good and will soon be making additions to our dinners.
