are trying to get in a last dose of sunshine before the forest floor becomes dark. The wild edibles and medicinals are also out in force. Yesterday Chelsea went out gathering ramps for the Farmer’s Table on May 25th and the day before Mom scored a couple of morels! Even the oak trees have green buds on them. This tapestry of green made a great backdrop for Molly and Polly’s first horse logging experience. I started dragging logs out of the woods for this year’s mushroom inoculation. Soon with all the leaves out we will be able to walk in the shade of the woods.
