Spring has exploded in a riot of colour here on the farm.
Out in the fields the colour is green …
We have so many vegetables planted out already – more than 2 miles of rows!
Along with all the spring crops – radishes, salad turnips, spinach, pak choy, broccoli, onions, snow peas … the first of the heat-loving vegetables are in. We planted tomatoes this week, the earliest they’ve gone out to the field in quite a few years.
The blackberries are leafing out and growing well. While they are not old, our blackberries do have some disease issues so we set out 2 new rows – about 100 plants – this spring. In about 3 years they will be in production and we will remove these older ones.
Around the farmyard the colours are amazing …
Spring is certainly a most beautiful time of the year!
