Beautiful Trees!

Spring is definitely here. There are so many trees and flowers in bloom around the yard.

The cherry tree

The redbud

The dogwood

The Japanese maple

And the wood violets (besides, who needs grass!)

Plus, our cold weather plants in the garden are doing really well. Our peas, lettuce, and beets are all coming in nicely. We will hopefully be able to transplant our other seedlings in the next couple weeks (once the frost is gone for good). Our greenhouse is a little bit crowded these days!

This will be the first year that Chris should be able to harvest a lot of hops from his plants – they are growing so quickly it seems like you can watch the vines getting longer while you stand there.
