Signs of Spring

"In the spring I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours." - Mark Twain

No new snowfall this week, but it has taken a while for the snow to melt. I was glad to discover the snowdrops survived the storm.

There are a few buds poking up from the earth as well.

And, the seedlings are doing fine. The kale and shallots are as hardy as ever. The basil and parsley are coming along. No peppers, though. I don't think the soil temperature has been consistent enough for them. (Note to self for next year's planting). The temperature on the porch reached over 100 degrees during the weekend.

We shipped out some tea towels, produce bags, and napkins to Common Crow in Gloucester, MA and Conklin's Maine Mercantile in Belfast, ME last week, as well as some tea towels to Kennebec River Artisans, in Hallowell, ME. If you're in those areas, please stop by and say hello for us!

You can also find us at our Etsy shop or on facebook.

Hope your week's a good one!
