The spring garlic is one of our first crops to emerge. We are pleased to see it doing so well and went through the beds today with a flame weeder to keep annual weeds at bay.

Flowering Acabia! This ornamental vine has the potential to produce an unusual purple-sausage looking fruit. We have yet to see any fruits here, most likely due to a lack of pollination.

April is bringing an explosion of blossoms, including these peach trees in bloom.
Mornings find us in the greenhouse planting seeds and admiring the seedlings that are coming up, like this baby Swiss Chard. We have planted 3,840 seeds in one day this spring, thanks to a new vacuum wand seeder that helps us plant small seed a whole row at a time.
