Taking Stock

Fortunately Hurricane Sandy had no significant impact on us here.  We had a couple of breezy days but escaped the problems that so many to the north of us have experienced.

Now it’s turning cold and we’re turning our attention to the next season on the farm.

We’ve cranked up the wood stove, reminding me that I need to spend more time cutting wood.  We’re winding down the CSA and already thinking about next years gardens–even as the broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and fall greens continue to come in.

We spent a couple of days this week at Virginia State’s Small Farm Conference, and left it with lots of inspiration and new ideas.

It’s just a good time of year.

Love Wins

    I do love autumn, and while traveling last week enjoyed the smoke from early wood fires in Kansas and Oklahoma.

    I did think of you and Cherie when I picked up some broccoli and kale at our farmers’ market yesterday. I still feel a little sad when I think of your photos from that empty market.

      Hoping you enjoyed your travels. Glad you’re able to still get good produce at the farmers’ market there. Ours are now closed for the year, but we’re fortunate that the gardens are still producing.
