The official calendar date for the start of spring is March 20th on Spring Equinox. We know spring has arrived on the east coast when we see the first snowdrops sprouting up from the earth.
Michele from Bee My Honey Apiaries, one of the MCFC farm partners, said she saw these first signs of spring on her property this week:”Look at the snowdrops starting to come up. This is the one area of my yard not covered in feet of snow. So excited. Now the bees will have just a little taste of something good to come. ”
With spring here, we know that summer is just around the corner. Confirmation has been made with the farmers and the CSA 2015 applications will be out by the end of the week!
