The farm in photos: March 11-17

Happy Spring!  Things are really gearing up here: the wild plums are already pretty much done blooming, the apples have started to bloom, early-spring crops are growing fast, and the weather is fabulous.  Here are a few pictures from the farm in the last week:


One of the last wild plums to bloom



Nectarine “Double Delight”



Playing in the orchard (young trees are caged to prevent deer damage, since the orchard is unfenced).



I can never remember what this flower is called.  (Ha.)

Apple “Pink Pearl”



Radishes beginning to form



Morels!  We had an amazing morel year maybe five years ago (literally hundreds of morels in the yard), but have only seen a few each year since then.



Tiny dinosaurs getting bigger.  They’re about two weeks old in this photo.



Pea shoot



And we’ll end on this grotesque-looking thing: a nub of rhubarb starting to swell.
