Mid-February Around the Farm

In case you’re wondering what’s been going on around my farm, the answer is, actually, quite a bit!  This winter, we’ve been spared a lot of heavy snowfall and the temperatures have been above normal for long stretches of time.  Taking advantage of all of that, my farm crew has been busy getting many chores done that are usually slated for completion in the spring.  Perennial beds have been cleared very nicely and a mountain of composted mulch has been spread over the gardens.  My vegetable garden has also gotten a big boost with a process called double-digging.  Take a look.
