Signs of Spring

Well, not many signs have arrived, but the first lambs of 2013 graced us with their presence this week.  And so I think of the rebirth of plants, green shoots and flowers, the return of song birds, and warmer days.



We do have a sense of the dormancy of winter on the farm, but much like the bubblings under a frozen pond, work and planning for the year ahead continue.  We have ordered our first batch of chickens, arranged for our next piglets to arrive, and looked seriously at some cattle that may become the base for our own herd.  Soon the ground will thaw and we will plant fence posts and seeds.  The cycle continues and we move in it with hope, excitement, trepidation, and awe.  Here’s to a joyous and fertile 2013!
