As you can see in the photos below, the spring meltwaters have drained and our farm access is back to normal! No more rushing waterfall cascading down the banks behind our home either.
Spring is advancing and we’ve had a chance to savour the first spring greens — chives!
The fields are drying out nicely, allowing Tom and the team to prepare them for spring planting. With some help from Shawn and our WWOOFer, Benjamin, Judy and I have planting this year’s garlic crop. Judy has also dusted off her seeder and put in the early radishes, lettuce, spinach, and onions. New rhubarb stalks have begun to show themselves, and this week I will be clearing away the remains of last year’s asparagus to make room for one of the highlights of spring — fresh asparagus!!
