NOT Like a Lamb at All!
a Note from the Farmer's Wife
Did I say something about spring and lambs last week? Well, I was wrong. Spring is pent up, shut down, suppressed and altogether stalled by a persistent chill in the air that refuses to let go. Our daffodils are pushing up and forming buds on short stunted stems.
Still the tractors push on, back and forth, hour after hour. One tractor disks the long straight beds, another follows spreading compost and a third tills the clods of earth, leaving a smooth, flat canvas, ready for planting. Our nursery is exploding with seedlings waiting to be transplanted. It looks like the weather will be gentler later this week, and that is when we will set them in.
On his day off today, the Farmer is planting trees. We recently received a shipment of 90 trees, shrubs and bushes and he is happily designing the bare landscape around our home. He’s been at it for about 6 hours already, and I think he’s got about 20 done - not easy work on a shale-dense hillside. The Farmer’s Wife is particularly excited about the hydrangeas - 10 of them! Hopefully they will take hold and grow quickly producing loads of cut flowers. Mmmm! I can’t wait!
Speaking of waiting, the Farmer has just made the call to delay the Spring Share by one week. We will deliver 6 items/week, instead of 5, so you will still get the full share value. Bread shares will get one extra specialty loaf on the final week and egg shares will get and extra dozen the first week. Pickup and delivery details will be sent before the end of April.
New Spring Share start date: Wednesday May 2.
Our Spring Share is only half full, so please jump in to enjoy the sweetest and most tender early vegetables of the season: baby salad, pea shoots, radishes, scallions, arugula, salad turnips and more.
Isn’t it time to eat fresh from the garden again? Yes!!
