With the change in the weather, things on the farm are really moving – including us!
In the orchards …
Lots of tree pruning is happening – making up for time lost during the prolonged winter.
The grass seemed to turn green overnight.
While the peach buds have barely changed yet,
the sweet cherry buds are swelling & turning green.
The open ground has been cultivated and is drying up nicely. We managed to seed snow peas, spinach, lettuce & beets last week.
In the berry patch …
Blackberries are being pruned,
and the raspberries too.
In the greenhouse …
Amy is busy transplanting – while Oliver is busy resting,
and the pots of vegetables & herbs are starting to line up.
The nights are still quite cold so we cover them each evening to keep more of heat in.
In the gardens …
The rhubarb is popping up,
and the herbs are coming to life (angelica in the background, yarrow in the front).
From a distance there’s nothing to see in the garlic patch,
but a closer look reveals rows of green poking through the straw.
I have plenty of company on my morning walks around the farm. Seems everybody is enjoying the warmer temperatures and is happy to be outside & moving again.
