Photos From The Farm – Spring Is In Full Gear!

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
