Waking Up

We’ve had an incredibly busy February, lots of packed social weekends and travel and generally not a whole lot of sleep for the adults in the family.  But the winter months are fading away already, and the increased daylight is telling us it’s time to get serious about spending time on the farm, too.

Sunrise over the garden and the new greenhouse!  Lovely to have clear mornings again.

Our first lamb of 2016 was born this past weekend, making time spent on the farm cuter than before, too!  This is Eureka’s little boy – she always throws singles, but they’re huge!

The new light and the warm February days are GREAT for the garden..weeds.   Our overwintered crops of brussels sprouts, collards and kale are getting ready to sprout rapini (my favorite spring dish), and the aisles have more green than the beds!

Our first seedlings in the greenhouse!  So excited to see these babies poking up their heads. Welcome to the world, little eggplants.
