Our winter daydreams are filled with visions of vibrant, just-picked greens and vegetables. Signs of emerging life have begun to appear around the farm in the form of plump buds on otherwise bare twigs of flowering perennials and dormant trees.
The nighttime voices of nesting owl pairs echo from the woods surrounding the farm, quieting as dawn approaches. Barely perceptible increases in day length and subtle changes in the scent of the air signal the approach of spring.
Packages of fresh seeds have begun arriving, and we’re making plans for our eleventh CSA year. Life is good.
