Can it be? Has spring arrived? The snow in the fields is gone, replaced by temporary ponds, growing weeds and winter-killed cover crops. Paula V., our greenhouse maven & farm photographer, is back at work in the sunny greenhouse, seeding another round of spinach. Beet, lettuce, scallion, kohlrabi and bok choy transplants are ready for planting. Celery and celeriac are ready to be potted-up. The first round of tomatoes will be seeded this weekend. The evidence is strong: Spring has arrived at Moraine Farm!
