LET'S DANCE!

No sun today, not yet, good thing, I don't think the plants or chickens could handle it, they need to be weaned slowly from the clouds and rain...

BUT

Let's Dance!

This morning I waded myself out to the field, reluctantly, wearing clean and dry jeans for the first time in about a week, I just had to see, see if maybe, just maybe...

past Adam's raspberries swimming amoungst the jewel-weed and nettles, over floating bits of irrigation pipes and lost bales of hay, seeing in the distance of the horizon our new hoophouse, which had made its way across two fields and along the border of a hedgerow to the edge of Adam's strawberries (which are, as he reported today, miraculously setting fruit)...

I finally made it to our field, on top of a little rise (and how very clearly vital these little rises have become!) and saw the PEAS! happy to be drying off and shaking it out...

and then the BEETS! and ONIONS! dear friends from early days on the field this year (gee, really it's only been 2 months...) - they're AOK, a little muddy but standing tall - high-riding! - also, okay...

LETTUCE, SPINACH, BACHLOR BUTTONS, RADISHES, DAIKON, NAPA, and many rows of greens!

ALL INTACT!

so, onto some more of Vermont spring....!
