Things are sure looking green in the foothills. And they should be after being drenched with over 12 inches of rain during five days and then a foot of snow! It’s been a wet one to say the least. I thought it may have just been a tease when the sun said hi this last Saturday morning. I decided to go for a hike and hoped that the rain/snow would withstand for a few hours. Fortunately, the morning was gorgeous and the hike was a very green one indeed. Mountain Bounty Farm is located about 2 miles from the Wild and Scenic Yuba River. Last Saturday, I hiked from the farm down the hills a bit and along the river. There was never a dull moment. Check out some photos.
That’s Liana, the neighbor’s horse – she’s 32!
In the spirit of greenness, I couldn’t resist rewinding a few weeks to post some of the last pictures from the last farm. In the last couple days that we were there numerous lettuce varieties were ready to harvest. They were soo delicious! The red butterhead [Sophia variety] had a great texture, color, and crunch.
From the trees, shrubs, and mosses to lettuce, cabbage, and fennel – greens are back!
UNTIL…….last Saturday night when this arrived:
And now almost all the snow has melted. Hopefully spring is truly here now! We’ve got lots of potatoes, strawberries, peas, broccoli, kale, and many other crops to get into the ground next week, let the season begin!
