Spring Green Farmers Market Opening & Farm Day is this Saturday 8 to Noon in the Library Lot. 

We will be bringing several baby goats for people to visit with - hope you can make it!

If you are a Spring Green member you now have the option to pickup your box at market. Just let me know.
 

In Your Box:

Spinach
Shunkyo Radish
Salad Turnips
Persian Cress
Asparagus
- from organic Spring Run Farm, Richland Center. We started our asparagus patch last year so it isn't producing enough yet to support shares.

On the Farm . . .

The bluebirds have hatched their babies. We are all united in helping the parents keep the starlings that want to steal their nestbox at bay.

A pair of Baltimore Orioles has arrived. We are spending time watching them eating grape jelly out our picture window.

All signs of spring and warm weather yet as this season goes in Wisconsin, Tuesday afternoon found us spending several hours (Liam, Aidan and Marlee enlisted) covering any vegetable plants in danger of the evening's frost warning. In the end temperatures didn't drop that low in our area, but we were able to sleep peacefully not worrying about it.

Otherwise we continue to do chores, plant seeds, water, pull weeds and repeat!

Have a great week,

Stacey
