We’ve had rain! Our dams are in excellent shape for the Summer – what a relief, and reason to truly celebrate as we head into the heart of Spring.
The blossoms are out, flowers are blooming, and I think we’re all very ready for Spring after what feels like an extra long Winter of hibernation on various levels. It’s the perfect time to start new things and get planting while the ground is fertile from the rain, before the temperatures start climbing more dramatically. Here’s our plant list for this month:
