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:

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.
