A Slow Start to Spring 2018

St. Francis is none too happy!

Proof that in this spot on April 13, during the never ending winter of 2018, we had actual sunshine and NO snow!

Almost all new seedlings need a bit of protection this time of year, but even more so this year!

The hoophouse is busting at the seams. These babies want to go outside and play!

Keep the faith -blooms will happen!

Despite the late spring, planting is slowly happening.
As I type this, I am watching it snow Christmas card perfect snow AGAIN! Spring is ridiculously slow to come this year and I hear so many people getting discouraged. Farming is tough, but we are tougher! Every year there are challenges, and we’re just getting ours out of the way early… right? Spring will eventually come and we’ll trade the snow shovels, plows, trough heaters, scowls and cuss words for tillers, shovels, hoes, rakes, hoses, smiles and aching muscles.

Despite the never ending winter of 2018, we’ve got some of our hardier seedlings in the ground and under cover. Our hoophouse and germination shelves are jammed full of almost 20,000 seedlings just waiting to go outside and play. The dahlia tubers are straining in their storage containers. Peonies, tulips, brodiaea, alliums and other early flowers are peeking up, if slowly.

Where art thou spring?
