Hail Spring!

Posted 3/23/2018

Yesterday late afternoon, I was reminded how quickly conditions can change this time of year...beautiful blue skies gave way to a line of clouds and a quick, white-out of a hailstorm. Seemed like rain showers at first, but as I was washing off the potting mix from my hands, the sounds on the windows and roof made it clear that what was falling was not water. We've been enjoying the 12 hours of daylight since the Equinox this week--'we' in this case meaning, I have made myself spokesperson for the chickens, piglets, horses, and emerging seedlings. It is possible my own excitement is layered on top of theirs, but all of us have some kind of greater freedom of movement, a push away from the hunkered down of winter. Despite that icy hail and drop in temperatures, we are moving on in all sorts of springy directions here on the farm. Soon more piglets, our first small herd of cattle, many more seedlings and growing plants, rhubarb, strawberries, and then some!Spring hail storm at Green Fire FarmSpring hail storm at Green Fire Farm
