Waiting for Spring
Spring comes when it will, like it does every year. No amount of time I spent wishing it was now will work, besides there is so much more to get done!
Even if it arrived tomorrow, I wouldn't be ready. So I wait, knowing that I planned for it to arrive per it's usual plans. Seed sowing calendars were poured over in January so I wouldn't have to fret now. But I still have to fight the urge to plant all the seeds!
Luckily, I can fend off a little of that anxious excitement with sowing and enjoying the greenness of the microgreens. I am out of the sunflower shoots for awhile, and soon the peas, but seeds are on order and will hopefully be here soon!
Sometimes the anticipation for spring can almost be better than the actual season since spring for me means go, go, go!!!!
The farm and I were awarded a Field Tested Grant From CFAC in Missoula for a host of farm tools to help make me a lean, mean plant growing machine! And the first purchase has arrived! A floral tool belt to hold snip, pruners, scissors, phone, pens, notepad, and whatever else I need while I plant, tend, or harvest. It's handmade by a small leather-working company in the US and I hope it will help stop me dropping my snips in the field all day!
