The garden is now ready to start. This is the experimental year of gardening. We are going to try straw bale gardening to give our soil a rest. This weekend I got the bales in place and start the prepping today. It is a 10 day process to start the bales composting from the inside via the addition of fertilizer. Then we plant right in the bales!

And last the biggest sign of Spring returning is the return of our little elk herd. There are 10 is this group that wanders the fields and the ridge above the farm.
