We had an usually cold storm pass through, bringing strong winds, heavy rains (up to 3 “) and even (pea- sized) hail and snow to the local mountains. Didn’t stay cold for very long and temperatures are slowly starting to heat up. We’ll be into the 90’s by the end of this week. Talk about weather whiplash. Short sleeves, long sleeves now back to short sleeves. Jeepers! Downright crazy, if you ask me. Though we are happy to have such a drenching rain so late in the season, the sad thing is this weather system ended up bringing the rash of deadly tornadoes to hit the mid part of the nation. Hope and pray everyone is safe and sound.
Spring (or mild form of summer) has definitely transformed the garden over night! Everything had a huge growth spurt. Seed trays, transplanted plants all line the walkways waiting for the spring crops to come out.
Justin is selling his extra soil blocks of herbs, tomatoes and summer veggies at the Front Porch Farm Stand (Open Sun thru Fri 10 AM – 8 PM). He also brought in some of his favorite organic gardening supplies to help local growers grow their own. Hopefully by summer, his little nursery and gardening supplies will increase as our expansion plans move forward. We are all crazy busy with the farm stand and other projects, so it is like a three ring circus around here! Never a dull moment, makes every day an adventure, to say the least. Luv it!
My workload has tripled so forgive me if I am behind in answering your emails and inquires. I will get to your emails, just might take awhile.
You know, it’s been quite awhile since I did a picture post ( I know they are one of y’all favorites). Figure it’s high time I do one whilst the garden is looking so purdy.
Don’t you just love Spring?
