Spring has sprung at Muddy Pumpkin Farms
The last drifts of snow melted from the land today. Hiking through the hills above the White River delta, I saw the first signs of spring. Green things were sprouting through last summer's brush and the deer were flashing their tails from the top of every slope.
The yucca were beginning their spring growth.
Charlie, our farm dog, came along for the hike.
So did Scurfpea, the farm's tomcat. He enjoys the long hikes as much as Charlie, always scrambling to stay in the lead. Here he is surveying the scene.
Back at the farm, the California Wonder pepper seedlings are content to wait for warmer days.
