Spring is Here!!!

March 16th, 2007

The growers spent some time this week in the 60 degree weather cleaning and sharpening our hand tools. Once the ground warmed up our Field Manager was able to begin discing our early planting fields. Dispite a warm winter we have found the early spring to be quite cold and wet. Thus, we feel our planting is running about a week late at this point.
We are grateful to Park Naturalist Denise Gibbs for supplying us with 15 bluebird boxes. We will assist in monitoring these boxes for bluebirds throughout the spring and summer. Here in this photo the growers are installing one of the new boxes. These are now 20 bluebird boxes ringing our 12 acre farm! habitat.
