Spring CSA Recap

Our Spring CSA was a totally success, blooming over four weeks this May to Early June. I wanted to share what the season progressed through. It is amazing to see the transition from week to week- starting with the daffodils and ending with a beautiful variety of colors and blooms.

Week One- a late start, but the cheery daffodils made up for it!
Week Two- The early tulips began

Week Three- A selection of our wild parrot and double tulips

Week Four- Lilacs, Tulips. Allium, Solomon's Seal and Viburnum
