IMG_3553Well it seems that we are stuck with the Winter that never happened. Ive almost given up on getting one big snow storm, but not quite. There is something I have come to love about the snow delineating the difference between our “on” and our “off” season, and without Mother Nature’s help with that the Winter just hasn’t seemed as relaxing for this farmer.

Now things are gearing up. The days are getting noticeably longer and that light is making a difference on our greenhouse greens. Farm supplies are being delivered, our crop rotation plan is almost done, and we are setting start dates for crew. While I will still try to enjoy the relatively slow pace of work that late February and early March entail, my brain is already abuzz with all the potential of a new growing year!IMG_0506
