In early April, I’m always nervous to feel like spring has finally sprung. Just when you’re getting used to warmer days and to nights above freezing, another depressing cold spell is bound to strike! But with temperatures getting into the 60s and even 70s, even when intermingled with chillier, drizzly days, it’s definitely starting to feel (and look) like spring might be getting a foothold at last.
On the farm, the peas are just beginning to germinate, sending their first root (known as a “radical”) down into the soil. Daffodils and other spring blooms are popping open everywhere and the kale, broccoli, and first of the lettuce seedlings are getting ready to go into the ground later this week!
