About Today’s Photo:
Driving by the Hanson field in the Lower Village the other day, I just had to stop and take a shot of the sharp line between the dandelions and the clover that had been planted in as a cover crop where Burnt Rock Farm had harvested sweet potatoes last season. The shot also shows just how quickly our forests are beginning to fill in with bright green spring foliage.
