Spring Has Sprung!

I know.  I tend to gush over the spring time but, I just LOVE it!  Being out in the warm sun and watching everything start to come to life is very therapeutic for me. After a long grey winter, the vision of ever flower, clean green field, sounds of the birds and ooh the smell!

This spring has made my heart skip a few beats however. The warm week in March was like a defibrilator. It got me started and then reality set in again…it was only March. Now we are in May and everything is as it should be.

The strawberries are showing their pretty white blossoms: (which means we are looking at about mid June for strawberries to be ready)


Our peas have popped their heads out of the ground.

And even the brand new strawberries (next year’s crop) have started to look like plants. (You can barely see them when they are first put into the ground) There are distinct rows of green…look closely now.

Also, I am so excited that Ken got to planting sweet corn this year! We just couldn’t get it in the ground last spring for all of the rain! I can hardly wait!

Planting sweet corn.


Most of all, I can’t wait to see all of your familiar faces and how much all of your kids have grown over the winter…(ahem..future employees!)
