Signs of Life in a Winter Garden

Signs of active plant life make the farm instantly seem more alive. I was a little down this morning when I went out for a walk with the dog. It’s a pretty dreary day: cold, misty, and foggy. Fortunately I was treated to little clues that even though it’s only February, spring is only a few weeks away! The early bloomers’ buds are swelling with life.
