Spring is hurrying along up here. It is amazing how fast the season is progressing. Red maples, poplars and willows are blooming, providing pollen for the early pollinators. The deer have migrated through, and a cow and calf moose have been hanging out in our neck of the woods. On our walk this morning, we saw where the moose had broken down young poplars to eat the buds and where they had ripped sap filled strips of bark off of red maples with their teeth.
Maple syrup season is over, garlic is up about 4 inches, and it is rapidly closing on time to get gardening. Onion sets are going in within the next couple of days, along with some lettuce and radish seeds.
