Signs of Spring

Henry and I went for a walk today to look for a sweet spot to grow sweet corn and sweet potatoes.  (And to throw rocks in the stream, of course.)  Over 50% of the farm is currently in a conservation program, so we can’t use it for farming.  That ends this fall, but for now it’s a job to find enough flat space to put everything in.  We found a good spot, and also found a blue jay, cardinal and some daffodils.  The birds were singing and it really felt like early Spring all morning.  In fact, the nice day lasted right up until I got ready to go for my run.  Then the clouds rolled in along with some arctic wind.
