As we bask in the warm sunshine and cool breeze of this unusually warm February day, the excitement is palpable. I overhear Jeff chatting with Tyler and Charlotte about getting ginger seeded in the greenhouse, putting finishing touches on our moveable chicken coops, and discussing field conditions (already!) as he wonders if we'll start field preparations earlier than usual this season.
Then, we take a collective breath. We remind ourselves of the spring weather we've experienced throughout our eleven seasons farming, and we realize that we shouldn't get too far ahead of ourselves. Next week, we'll finish out our "winter conference season" with our annual trip to LaCrosse, Wisconsin for the MOSES organic farming conference, and we'll continue other regular winter activities like refining our planting plans and placing seed orders.
Today, though, we enjoy the sunshine and take advantage of the energy its giving us. We hope you're enjoying this day, too!
