This Week on the Farm: Week 12

And just like that, it’s spring here on the farm.

We’ve been running at full tilt trying wrap up of the last construction projects so we can get back into the groove of harvesting daily. I won’t lie, it’s been tricky to juggle and at times I’ve lost my cool. Thank goodness my body remembers how to do this though. After so many years of farming, I can harvest without even thinking about it. The motions are just like breathing.

Hopefully next week I can show you all of the upgrades we’ve been working on and share a few more words about the process.

    Fabulous shot here of your work table. The arrangement down the end looks stunning. Love the combinations of the white, yellow and red overall. Intereseting to note that it looks like you burn the bottom of the steams of the Poppies. So, that really works./?

    Slow is nearly gone, almost a month earlier than normal. Still getting cold at night though.

    Love that bird’s eye view shot! There are so many volunteer daffodils in the yard. I have no idea where they came from. I’m excited the season is starting for you – our bit of land dried enough to work and is now under inches of water. Haha.

    Just had snow flurries again yesterday, here on the Cape I think we’re never going to see spring! So nice to see it exists somewhere!

    I’m so jealous – I think the weather here may be broken. It’s been 19 degrees and 80 in the same week. :)
