I spotted daffodils in the woods yesterday, some over 7 inches tall already, though not yet blooming. The dogwood buds are swelling. Sure enough, even though it's only January, hints of spring are in the air. A peek in the hoop house today revealed lettuces that seem to have perked up overnight--plants that were hugging the ground last week are now reaching up to taste the warmer air. Onions that looked piddly not too long ago are more robust. Garlic seems to have gotten its second wind. Already? Already.
We put in our first seed order last week for broccoli and cabbages. The rest of our seeds, I plan to order today. Soon, boxes will arrive in the mail, full of potential life.
I plan to open the CSA today to accepting members for our 2010 season. Indeed, it is that time already.
