The Sun Is…or WAS shining! Spring is here!

It has been a beautiful start to spring here in Oregon.  I say that while staring outside to the pouring rain and wind, but I promise you, it has been beautiful the past week…just not today!  When the soil starts to warm up plants are usually very responsive and start to grow like crazy!  Remember those peas we planted just a few Sunday’s ago? Well here is an update on how they are doing…

The hazelnut or filbert trees are also starting to wake up and shoot some leaves out!

We were also able to sneak away one Sunday morning at 5am to head down to the river to try to catch some Springer Salmon!  Although we didn’t get to bring anything home, you still can’t beat a beautiful morning out on the water!
