Outdoor Spring Chores Around the Farm

We’re expecting more warm weather in the Northeast today. Yesterday, temperatures soared into the high 80s at my Bedford, New York farm, and everyone scrambled to complete our long list of outdoor chores.

There's always so much to do this time of year. Among some of the spring tasks on our list - changing all those heavy glass storm doors for the lighter, cooler framed screen inserts, preparing the hoses and sprinklers, taking out all the summer furniture, removing the straw bales that insulate my hoop houses during winter, and planting all the flowers in the cutting garden.

Here are some photos - enjoy. What are your outdoor spring chores? Share your list with me in the comments section below.
