Spring has arrived in North Stonington

Today it finally feels like spring in North Stonington! The daffodils are blooming and we have geraniums in flower in the sun-room. As an added bonus the seeds we planted a few weekends ago are coming up, and we could have lettuces in just a few more weeks.

We had lots of April showers in the last week, which is good for the plants and today we could smell that "characteristic agricultural odor" that indicates the folks at the Cool Breeze Farm at the end of our street are gearing up to plant their spring crops.

Pretty soon we'll be feasting on fresh home grown produce. Of course this means we need to get to work eating up the end of last year's supplies from the freezer! Come on over at any time for an apricot smoothy or pumpkin muffins........
