Spring Means Seed Orders!

We’ve spent weeks organizing and planning for this up-coming season so things run smoothly this summer when our poor brains are fried from the heat and exhaustion.  The last couple weeks have seemed like Christmas with all the boxes and packages from the various seed companies.  I think only a gardener/farmer can appreciate the joy and anticipation that comes with each new package.  I have to admit now that I’m farming on a larger scale the seed packets aren’t as pretty as those for home gardeners but the treasures inside are just as precious.

This winter has seemed much longer than normal and definitely much colder.  Due to the weather, I’m afraid my Spring Fever is worse than ever.  I should be starting in the greenhouses soon so hopefully I’ll be on the mend soon.
