Spring is always bittersweet.The tranquility of the winter season comes with a feeling of rest and relaxation. But when winter gives way to spring, we feel the pressures of the upcoming season bearing down on us. In order to have a successful harvest season our crops must be planted in a strategic way. The spring season is very important for the success of the upcoming season. We plant over 20,000 transplanted plants and over 100,000 seeds planted straight to the field. This is spanning over 50 different types of produce.
During the spring season we also spend a lot of time cutting down dead trees. Firewood is very important and valuable to us. Not only does it heat our homes but we use a massive amount of wood while making maple syrup! This last week we worked on cutting a lot of firewood, among doing other things. We finished knocking down a huge red elm today. We had to cut it, pull it with bobcat, cut it some more and finally it fell! We'll use some to heat Todd's house, some will go towards our syrup fire and we will put some for sale at our roadside stand!
Enjoy your week everyone, we sure are looking forward to the 50's that are on their way!
