First Signs

Among the maple sap running, increasing numbers of song birds in the morning, and spotting the first robin these early flowers by Nick's tree show us that spring is most definitely on the way.  March 17th, St. Patrick's Day, is a traditional milestone on the annual growing cycle.  If the ground can be worked it will be time to plant seeds for crops such as spinach, peas, lettuces, carrots, Swiss chard, radishes, and onions.
