Spring has sprung!

Gorgeous, lengthening days give way to spending more time outside!

Cozy days in front of the woodstove are over, and we’re ready to get back outside to work and play!

And, just in time for that, we have a beautiful refurbished deck from which to view the blessings of our farm!

Despite torrential downpours that began the day after planting tiny seeds that we thought were sure to wash away, we are so happy and grateful that we got germination!

The peas are popping…

It is amazing to see the strength of a new plant, determined to push from below the earth to find light…

And the asparagus ascends!

Along with that, the spinach and chard are sending forth their first leaves, and the onions are rooting!  So far, so good!

Potatoes are planted, too – and yesterday we put in a long row of green beans.

We are so looking forward to fresh, home grown vegetables!

 

And with the weather so warm yesterday, and the nights less chilled, it was time to send these month-old boys out to pasture.  It’s always so funny to see their reaction to grass and bugs!  Once they realize that it’s not such a scary place, they start to really enjoy it – basking in the sun and chasing at anything that moves!

The days are growing longer…laundry blows on the line, drying so quickly with the low humidity…

Spring is such a special time – but it was so late making its official climactic arrival this year that it was welcomed even more than ever – and will be gone before we know it!

Enjoy it while you can!
