Spring is in the Air!

I know I am a few days early to be saying this, but today at the farm, it really did feel like it. The fresh smell from a recent night's rain, the bright sun and soft breeze was very welcome as I was standing on the soft soil.

Let's face it. Spring for a farmer is pretty exciting! While soil is not yet being worked, lots of things are on the go. Summer market dates are now set, CSA shares are selling out (we have just one left!), and seedlings are started. Onions, leeks, peppers, and herbs are growing in trays, our seed potatoes are sprouting, and our garlic, our precious garlic, is on its way.

Amy and I have got a few things to get done out in the field in the new few weeks, and this lovely weather will definitely help us. Between finishing hoophouse construction and prepping soil, Spring, we have been waiting for you.

Just look at that young Chesnok Red!
