Early Spring Work in the Woodland

Woodland chores continue as my outdoor grounds crew and gardeners also transition to our long list of spring tasks. From now through summer is our busiest time here at my Bedford, New York farm.

This time of year, my team works on many projects, including removing the burlap that has protected my boxwood all winter long, pruning various trees and hedges, and preparing our garden beds. But there is also work being done in the woodland - moving cut trees closer to the carriage road, so they can be hauled to our big compost pile in the back field, chipping branches and twigs, and staking up young trees for added support and visibility as they grow. There is always so much to do on my working farm.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
