How to grow. Noticing.

We are noticing changes as spring begins to make her presence known. The grass is deepening in green. Our hens bound across the yard. Vines slowly begin to find there way up and our greenhouse grins with the knowledge that the tarragon has "over wintered." 

Noticing is part of this farm life. It is part of knowing when it is time to turn the compost, when the saplings are ready for mulch or when one more piece of split wood can be added to the evening fire. But some days it is as simple as looking out the kitchen window and seeing how the green has changed.
