It seems like forever since I sat down to write!! And it probably has been! The very few winter months we have are a good time to get all of your philosophical musings out in words, but then spring hits and there is no time for those moments any longer.
It has been busy, busy, busy here at 47 Daisies. We shut down the seed room in the barn this past weekend and transferred all of the warm weather plants to the hoop house. Another end to grow lights and heaters until next December.......:) The hoop house is FULL of plants almost ready to be set out into the beds. Among them.....tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, flowers, herbs, and a few leftover cold weather transplants that haven't made their way out yet.
We are harvesting asparagus every day now and it is delicious. It literally grows overnight and if you don't catch it daily is soon too tough to eat. Our favorite way to quickly prepare asparagus this year is to bake in the oven on 425 for about 12 minutes. We like to coat the asparagus with a small amount of olive oil, sea salt and Parmesan before baking. It's perfect!! And we're not sick of it yet.
We are milking once a day now, raising baby chicks in the brooder and preparing for the start of the CSA on April 7th!! Spring is busy, but so exciting around here.
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
