Other hints of May surround us. Garlic pokes through the straw, asparagus spears through the sawdust, and the gooseberries reveal their flowers. Radish and lettuce seedlings peer atop the raised beds. Honey bees dash in and out of the shad bush flowers while barn swallows dive bomb cats basking in the morning sun. We mulch the Squash House cutting garden and herb beds with shredded bark to gain a foothold on the weeds. Weed barrier fabric drapes the drip lines of the greenhouse and awaits its new occupants: flower, vegetable, and herb seedlings. It's planting time.

Visit our farm stand as we bring spring to you. Gather some daffodils and Viburnum branches, pick up some asparagus, or take home some honey fresh from the farm. Happy Planting!
