I have to tell you all, I am so excited for this season. The weather is unpredictable as always, but we are more prepared than ever for it. We have a cold frame/greenhouse taking up a bit of space in the back for all of our seedlings this year, just thought I’d share some of my joy with all of you, because seeing all these plants popping out of their blocks is one of the most wonderful things about being a farmer.

We have started getting our garden spaces as well, we have 5 spaces this year, but we have just about the same amount of square footage as last year as most of the plots are pretty substantial in size. It’s amazing to see how much the interest in what we’re doing has grown just over the last year, though we are more focused than ever on quality, getting the most quantity out of a space is also a high priority. The next month or so is going to be a lot more of garden prep, the big garden at Lowell is going to take some work, and lots of blocking up of our little plants as they grow into fantastic food producers.
I hope you don’t let the weather throw you off too much, spring is definitely here, the plants are growing and soon we will be enjoying their fruits.
