Scarlet Cups, Mud, and Early Morning Walks

Bird songs on the front porch (with hot coffee and the latest copy of Small Farmers Journal), budding maples in the sugar bush, scarlet cups and spring beauties in the woods, coltsfoot on the sides of the road and mud…loads of boot sucking, tire swallowing mud…is what heralds the new season to Under Orion Farm.

Now that spring is here, the pace is frenetic, but it does feel good to walk in the woods with friends while the trees are still bare, black flies have yet to arrive, and the days are warmer. Enjoy some recent photos by my friend Rollin Tebbetts. Happy Spring everyone!
