The buttercups on my front walk are already blooming, the geese on the lake are pairing up, and every farmer I talk to is already getting antsy about planting. While the buttercups might have gotten a little ahead of themselves in light of this week’s cold snap, spring is inching ever closer. It’s a time of new life and renewal, manifested in the return of green to our fields. This all gets me thinking about seeds.

Spring is one of my favorite seasons of the year. The weather starts to warm up (which is even more appreciated this year), the sun stays out longer, and the Earth wakes up from its winter slumber and begins to come to life. I love seeing the grass and fields turning green, hearing the birds start to chirp, and watching the flowers begin to bloom.
