    Wow! What a picture! Your horse? I envy your growing season. A friend of mine gardens in your neck of the woods and started outside weeks ago while I'm still waiting to be sure the last frost has come. We visited out there this time last year, and it was cool for our visit but the foliage was significantly further along than back here in Ontario. Looks like I missed your special day. Congrats for you April 6th 'farmer of the day' day.
