The snow is finally gone.  The cold temperatures and frost warnings have gone away and the garden is in! Spring is in full swing at the farm – Finally!!!  So we thought for today’s Sunday update – we would simply take a tour around the farm in photos – and let you see what is growing.  We hope you enjoy!

Happy Gardening! Jim and Mary
