Farm Happenings for March 16, 2023

Posted on March 10th, 2023 by Steve Young

Snow covering the greenhouses at this time of the year gets me a little frustrated when knowing I should be moving ahead with starting my spring seeding. Instead today I'm shoveling snow. Being the first part of winter was rather dry, I'm now starting to think our spring could be a wet one. Robins, red-winged black birds, and sandhill cranes are all back from their winter residence. However, the way its looking today they may have returned too early. Seeing some of our migratory birds return is just another sign that spring is right around the corner. It won't be long before some warmer and dryer weather dominates the weekly forecast. Yippee!

The next couple months I won't have a lot to offer but what I do have available has a great shelf life so don't be afraid to order more than you need for the week. Even the eggs as fresh as they are, and being unwashed from Miller farms they'll stay in excellent condition for several weeks.

If for any reason during the spring season I have to postpone a scheduled Thursday delivery I'll send out an email message to everyone with a new rescheduled date. Worst case if anything it would be the following day. I've been down this road before and I'd rather not go out in a blazing snow storm feeling it's better to be safe than sorry for everyone's sake.

Looking forward to some warmer days when I can get my hands back into the soil. Take care!
