It has been wonderful to watch the Winter weather melt into early Spring (yes, I know it's technically still Winter). This month we have watched hard freezes, snow storms and ice, give way to crocuses, robins, spring peepers and sandhill cranes flying North.
Spring is most often a "hurry up and wait" type of deal for farmers. Last week we worked all available hours in the fields preparing ground, and were ready to hit it hard this week planting the earliest Spring crops. Unfortunately we picked up enough rain that we're back to working on maintenance projects until we have a string of sunny days.
We look forward to seeing what happens this month, we plan on transplanting the baby seedlings that were started back at Christmas time: Cabbages, Broccoli, Lettuce, Collards, Cauliflower, and more. We also hope to put in the seed potatoes, and transplant a huge patch of onions. Seeding in the greenhouses wont slow down either as we soon start our earliest plantings of Summer Squashes, Cucumbers, and Beans!
A big thank you to all who support us, we appreciate everything that you do for us! I hope you enjoy the pictures for the month, and remember to take the time to enjoy watching Spring appear!
