The colour of the year for 2017 as chosen by the “world-renowned authority on colour” is greenery, “a refreshing and revitalizing shade … symbolic of new beginnings.”
Of course nature always chooses green.
At this time of year, when the calendar says spring, the days are lengthening, and the sun is warming, green begins to pop up all over – in various shades & hues, shapes & textures.
We continue to seed almost daily – vegetables, herbs, & flowers.
Most things are growing well but there are always some seeds that hesitate to grow. Usually the problem is old seeds …
… or we don’t provide the proper conditions to allow for germination.
Mint grows along the edges in our larger hoophouse – adding a burst of spring flavour to salads.
And while we still revel in the newness of the green … colour appears!
