First Green Shoots

With a long series of intense frosts and the least light of any time of year Spring seems a long way off. But there are some signs that the tide of dark is about to turn:
  • One of the flocks of chickens have stopped moulting and started to lay eggs again.
  • The early garlic is sprouting

  • The first asparagus is up before all last year's shoots have died off.
There are still many weeks until we can really notice the increase in light and months before the heater will slow down its consumption of wood but seeing some growth emerging from the ground is always a good reminder that light follows dark in an endless cycle of life. It's good to be alive.
