Grey days when winter won't let go yet
and the work at the farm continues to be all about prep.
We stay steadfast and patient doing the incremental work
that we know will soon yield harvest.

The work at the farm will bring us the greatest abundance
but takes more time than our patch of farm behind "the fig."
But we work on both and much of what we start in the greenhouse
will soon be planted in the fresh new beds at the farm.

And the garden outside the kitchen door
is offering up other goodies for us right now.

Calendula loves the late winter and early spring weather.
This variety has attractive brilliant orange flowers.
The blooms can be used as attractive living accents to cocktails
or dried and made into tea.It is also very good for your skin

At the farm at Imagery Estate Winery, we are prepping beds
to plant potatoes knowing soon there will be lush growth
joining the fava beans we will soon harvest.
The garden grows, we do our work.
