Think Spring

We have ordered the New Seed catalogs , and decided where the new raised garden beds will go. On Friday I visited an Organic farm and joined their Garden Share program. The farm is based around their team of Belgian draft horses that are the source of power for food production. They sell vegetables, flowers, herbs, dry beans, and eggs through our Community Supported Agriculture program . They use the horses to do all of the plowing, harrowing, and mowing. Planting is done by hand and cultivation is shared between the horses and owners. It was fun to talk to other gardeners and Draft Owners .

When it snows like this you fantasise about spring and summer in Maine.
