The Trees are Sweetly Blooming

Taking another old song for inspiration!

Again this week we will be at the Crystal Spring Farmers' Market on Saturday, but not yet the Brunswick Farmers' Market on Tuesday and Friday.

We are moving at full tilt here on the farm, always trying to get more plants in the ground. This spring has been a little unusual in that it is so dry. This has helped us get the tractor out in the field sooner than we thought, so we have been able to prepare a lot of beds for vegetables. The downside of the dryness is that we have to be careful when we transplant, to make sure that the seedlings aren't going to dry out in the wind and sun or have to wait too long for rain.

The lettuce is happy now, but see how dry the soil is!

Sunny, dry days are great for perennial maintenance. We have been doing a plethora of weeding - and it's great to see those first weeds of spring dehydrate in the sun. Our edible flower beds and asparagus patch thank us.

See you Saturday!
