What a wonderful time of year. It's nice and cool outside in the mornings and the sunsets have been great! The rain is getting old, but other than getting a little wrinkly, at least we're pretty waterproof.
The strawberries are looking good so far and might just be a week or two away from bursting into ripeness!
Right now on the farm there is much to do. Weeds to pull, signs to make, emails to answer, batteries to charge, tractors to fix, and the list goes on, but it's hard to focus sometimes when beautiful goldfinches and hummingbirds flit by with their bright colors and magical flight.
The Bees have been buzzing and we hope to have a bit of honey for sale this year. It's been a tough go for the little guys with unusual winters the past few years but we stay optimistic and do what we can to help them survive. We planted a native pollinator seed mix nearby this year and hope the red clover will give them plenty of places to alight as they look for inviting flora.
It's a busy time of year, but a good one. Going to bed exhausted from a day's work of something your proud to be a part of is a good feeling. We hope you too find something that feels so worthwhile to spend your time doing.
Looking forward to seeing you this Spring,
Mark & Kristina
