The robins have returned in a flock, the bluebird and kingfisher have
been sighted. We have a dawn chorus again, all our birds that
overwinter are testing their spring melodies. The first spring peepers
gave their first few calls this morning! The streams are burbling with
snow melt. Even the farmers are singing!
This past week is the first time since last August that we enjoyed more than 2 days of sun in a row. It has given a much needed boost to the tunnel greens, the cover crops out in the fields which are feeding the soil, and to the farmers. We're looking forward to next week, optimistic that we can plant the first sugar snap peas, radishes, and arugula of the 2019 season! Life is so much easier when the sun is shining.
We're at Dupont Circle on Sunday. The spinach is still spectacular, but this week Lettuce is in the spotlight. We've amazing red butterheads this week, ready for your salad, sandwich, or wrapping your favorite tabbouleh, bean salad, or egg salad.
