spring is springing
Spring is quite under way- with surplus moisture, for this year at least. Last year we were very dry at this time. The Lord knows what we need and always provides. The canola bloom is now over and the seed pods are developing. Most of the first cutting of hay has been made and the field corn is just peeking through. With sweet corn about a foot tall and customers at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market asking for it, we are eager for the first ripe ears. Now we need to catch up on a number of things that have been neglected the past months and get a few more things in order for the up coming vegetable marketing season. With plans for a roadside stand this year, there are a few more things to think about and prepare for.
