Thanks to the Neighborhood Tree Planting Project we were able to plant lots of red bud and tulip poplar trees around basecamp this week. The kids helped dig holes, add compost and water them.
We've been finding lots of spring wildflowers and writing lists of the ones we spot. New ones are popping up each day. So far we've found Trout Lily, Hipatica, Dutchman's Breeches, Spring Beauty, Toothwort, Purple Cress, Trilium, and Violets.
Wildlife and mushrooms are also starting to come out!
Spring also means fresh grass for the alpacas!
With all of the rain, there's been a lot of water in the creek and the pond has been full.
