Spring’s coming: bloomin’ tulips, Celebrity “kids” and an interactive Farm Tour map

Hang in there, friends, spring will be here before you know it. The cosmic forces are in alignment:

  • The new kids have been birthed at Celebrity Dairy, where the goats have names like Angelina Jolie and Miley Cyrus. You can visit them and the young ‘uns at the Open Barn this week-end March 6-7, all day 9 am to 5 pm. Don’t forget to check out their latest batch of chevre, cheese spreads and goal-milk yogurt.

This is the largest sustainable farm tour in the country, so it’s worth planning ahead so you can cover as much ground,and food, as possible. Check out Carolina Farm Stewardship Association’s web page for details.

By tour time, Piedmont farmers and gardeners will be too busy to spit, and conscientious consumers will be looking forward to the cornucopia that our Carolina spring and summer are sure to deliver.

Click your heels together and chant with me three times: There’s no season like spring, especially in Carolina.

    Yay, Spring! Can’t get here soon enough for me.

    The daffodils Haruka planted next door are just starting to pop. Bob’s engrossed in garden plans. The birds are chirping like lunatics. The days are getting longer and warmer. All the signs point to paradise ahead!
