Mother nature giving back

By May 23, 2013SPRING

IMG_2567As I looked around this week the field is starting to grow in. It feels like an eternity since we began this season and it is only the end of May. Mother nature has finally decided to embrace our crazy plans and help us along a bit with warmth and then rain. There is nothing like a good solid rain to give new life to the plants.
