happy things

Farm labels arrived in the mail

First tulip harvest ready for delivery! 

 Violet-lined steps


Peachy tones are appearing on these tulips after 5 days in the vase

My ranunculus overwintering experiment under cover of a lowtunnel had a 66% survival rate!  Here's the first big bloom from the patch.  Still exciting even though I ordered orange (and bright red happens to be my least favorite color).
 

The season of full & long days is here, which means lots of fried egg sandwiches and all their variations
