More of Early April at my Farm

After what seemed like the endless winter, the temperature nearly reached 80-degrees at the farm yesterday.  The morning started out being cold and damp and then by noon, the sun came out and it became rather hot and humid quite rapidly.  It actually felt rather tropical for early April.  These elevated temperatures really help to accelerate plant growth and things are popping and sprouting everywhere.  I certainly hope that once things balance out weather-wise, winter will finally be gone, allowing spring to emerge gradually, which is best for plant growth.
