Spring is Coming

Earth is showing signs of awakening! Winter snow brought much needed water and nitrogen to the soil. Artists have busily worked in their cozy homes through the short and cold days, invigorated by the beauty outside.

Now crocuses peak out of the frozen ground, the Sugar Maple sap is flowing, the poultry ladies are producing eggs again, and it is about time to sow the first of our vegetable seeds yet again. March is here!
