April Showers Bring May Flowers to Mercy Hill Farm

Blossoming Tulip Flowers

The last of our snow melted last week. (a lingering pile out back of the house in the shade) and now tulips and Daffodils are in bloom!

Colorful Tulips and Daffodills in Bloom


Tulips Along the Walkway

These Tulips were the first to grace our walkway, poking up through the crushed stone border.

Meanwhile, the tomato seedlings wait anxiously to get into their beds. They’re going to need another week or two of protection. We set them out during the day to get used to the sun and wind, bringing them in at night to keep from jack frost from nipping at their noses.

Sure Signs of Spring at Mercy Hill Farm

The month of March brings with it dustings of snow, like this one last Thursday, but they quickly melt away.

Meanwhile, the Daffodils are pushing up through the mulch,

Brocolli, Kale, Collards, Lettuce and Onions are sprouting indoors.

A thick layer of newspaper weighed down with fresh cut firewood will keep the growing beds free of weeds for another month until the soil temperature gets comfortable enough for our seedlings.

The girls even came out for a spring stroll, a scratch and some foraging.

and then tonight after dark – BONFIRE baby! Woohoo!
