Not so silent spring

April 11, 2012

April is a big month over at Wild Earth. Preparing for our first big market day of the year on May 5th. We lost 400 lettuce seedlings in a cold frame on one of those 86 degree days a few weeks back. Quite disappointing, but we press on and plant salad, arugula and a variety of radishes.

The songbirds have returned to us with their morning chorus quite early this year, as have the spring peepers. Fruit trees went in bloom 4-6 weeks early and it was 86 in march. Yesterday it snowed. Global weirding in full effect!

The Brightmoor Forest Garden will be planted April 29th (arbor day weekend) and we would love to have help making that happen. Trees should start coming soon, some of the ground cover seeds have already been planted, and most of the other supplies have already arrived! I will post the project description soon. Happy spring!
