dirty nails

the sun is shinning just a bit richer these days and the warmth of growing is with us. the labyrinth is coming back alive in the field below the barn and as the rich peat soil dries a bit more we will be putting in potatoes for a late fall crop. margits daffys are all abound and as we continue to plant peas + salad greens + carrots + beets + leeks + herbs our nails are gettin dirty with lotsa love.

well time has slipped by again since our last post adn mostly it has been because we have been getting ready for the growing season. we had tremendous fun and some success with taping our big leaf maples for syrup. yup... syrup. here are some pics to tell the story and come next year it will be available for tasting and taking home!

garlic is in the ground and artichokes are seeded, the lavender is coming alive and we have just harvested nettle for a new tea blend. the duncan farmers market this saturday april 4 will be our first time at the market so come see us there! the studio is still open thursday through sunday 10-4. if it ever stops snowing and starts getting hot... there will be lots growin on at the artfarm.
