We declared spring a few weeks ago when the seed house began to fill up, but now it’s overflowing and our hardening-off house is full, too. On Sunday we transplanted the first spring spinach, and yesterday we seeded the first round of carrots in the field. This morning’s gentle rain watered them in, just as we’d hoped. With seeds and spinach in the field, song birds loud and lively in the trees, and the smell of mud and grass infusing the air we are thankfully sinking into spring.
In this season when so much is waking up outside, what is enlivening you? We invite you to join us in stretching into spring by sharing your spring photos on our Facebook page.
We also invite you to become part of the Good Heart CSA by signing up for your share today. As a CSA member, you’ll get fresh, local food from June 1-October 1, plus free pick-your-own-flowers July-September to nourish your body, mind and spirit. Learn more and sign up on our CSA page.
Now, it’s back out to the greenhouse! As we head into a rainy week, look for the crocus, iris, and daffodils popping up. Soon it will be May, and all this rain will blossom.
In Good Heart,
Katie and Edge
