Farm Update: Spring Has Sprung!

5 Comments

Remember The Farm? I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted about it, but well, things were kinda dormant for a while. I stopped by this past weekend and saw all sorts of signs pointing to SPRING: blossoms, berries, and even baby chicks (well, more like adolescent chicks). Enough talk, let’s get to the photos:

First plants to come up: beets to the left and kale to the right. TC also pointed out some renegade tomato and cilantro plants (not pictured) that must have grown from last year's seeds.

These are shallots. Don't they look just like garlic or green onions?

Spring chickens, literally. These ladies arrived 5-6 weeks ago and were moved outside just last week. They're being kept in a separate cage to protect them from the older hens.

This chick is the most fearless one out of the bunch.

Peach blossoms. I had never seen these or plum blossoms before (see below), but I thought they were beautiful.

Plum blossoms sure are purty.

The four eggs we collected that day.

What’s your favorite sign of spring?

  1. I love Spring for so many reasons. I have to say I’ve become a huge fan of cherry blossoms. They look like puffs of frosting!

  2. I have two: (1) pink magnolia blossoms (because they come out in late Jan/early Feb and it makes spring seem to arrive so early) and (2) that very first morning in April (just a couple days ago) when there’s a tiny bit of light when my alarm goes off and it doesn’t seem like I have to get up in the middle of the night anymore.

  3. ahhh…. teenage chicks! i love how in the spring the kids can play outside at 7:30PM and it’s not dark anymore. crocuses, daffodils and tulips make me happy too.
