Gardening in April

With unseasonably warm weather this weekend, gardening is now underway at Kearsarge Meadows.   Our 2 year old hops vines are already breaking through the ground and the wine grapevines of the same age are budding out.   It's a good sign.

This weekend, early crops are already going into the ground.   Snap peas, onions, garlic, and strawberries.   Frost sensitive plants will be started indoors.

With temps expected to hit the 70's this weekend, little milestones will be reached.   For example, the baby chickens will see sunshine and grass for the first time.   Horse baths will take place.   Garden weeding and ground preparation will take place.   And the first motorcycle ride of the season will have to take place.

Spring with summer temperatures!   No problem!   Bring it on!
