These adorable little girls and guy were born a few days ago … our first babies of the year! So cute! Waiting for a few more mamas to kid and hoping it won’t be this weekend during the predicted ice storm. But knowing livestock, it probably will. 😄

Five baby goats now call our farm home! And boy are they fun to watch. 😀
It’s been a little over a month since we planted those little tomato transplants in the high tunnel. What a difference a month makes!
It is been a very mild spring, with no significant temperature fluctuations, and NO ROLY-POLYS this year. Thank goodness. Our high tunnel has been relatively stress free for the first time since its installation. The plants are thriving, and putting on flowers – it’s awesome to see!
The watch is on for the first green tomato!
Asparagus season was shorter than we anticipated this year, thanks to two late freezes. 😦 But. never fear, veggie lovers! Summer veggies will be here before you know it!
Some might say spring had a minor setback this weekend. We got a pile of snow at the farm. The goats venturing out to say hi. And yes, that monster with his head over the fence is our tiny Jack Jack puppy. Hi Jack Jack! The bees are all snug in their hives, waiting out this winter storm While there were plenty of things we would have liked to have been working on this weekend, it was kind of nice to have a slow, snowy weekend. And boy was it a pretty snow! The grapvines, all pruned and ready for the season, still sleeping beneath a layer of snow. But look! Tomato seedlings all warm and toasty inside the house. So, see? Spring is on it’s way. Just a minor setback.
It’s official … gardening season has begun. I know, I know, you’re going to say it’s like 20 degrees outside. You’re going to say there are snowflakes swirling around. You’re going to say it’s MONTHS until the ground thaws.
But that doesn’t change the fact that it is seed starting time in the Werner household.
One flat each of cauliflower, cabbage and kohlrabi …
Four flats of tomato seeds for the high tunnel …
Two more flats of tomatoes and one of broccoli to go. It may be freezing outside, but we know summer is coming!
