Like a Lamb
By Charis Lindrooth
If I ever saw a March come in like and lion and leave like a lamb it was this one. What an exhausting relief it was for the Farmer and son to traverse the fields all day yesterday, lifting drip tape, spreading compost and tilling fields. I watched them from the house, like orange beetles slowly crawling across a patchwork quilt. A sure sign of spring! The spring peepers, tiny frogs in the wet hollows, started their chirp this week, another herald of warmer days. And the curled brown tendrils of grass have suddenly taken on a tinge of green. I’m ready for the landscape to adopt it’s green-gold hue and wake up my heart again! I am also ready to eat some local vegetables again - for me, as local as they come! Hurrah, the Spring Share starts in 26 days!!
