News, 11-13-10

The past two months have been incredibly busy: baby showers, weddings, rehearsal dinners, birth classes, doctor and midwife appointments, parties, potlucks and concerts.  Newsletter has been on the list for some time, but with all the work besides, I am just now getting around to it.

We hope you enjoyed this CSA season.  Replete with weather and other challenges and changes, it has been one that I will never forget.  Another year that proves the resilience of a diversified vegetable operation.  Some things always fail, but, at least so far, many things inevitably prosper as well.  We are inexpressibly grateful for your unwavering support and love.  Next year will of course present all new opportunities to learn and grow, and we look forward to sharing it all with you.

Yesterday was the much ballyhooed, anticlimactic “due date.”  (Hopefully there will not be a late fee!)  Courtney has felt good all along and has handled the dueling stresses of first-time-teacher/first-time-pregnancy with a beautiful sangfroid.  We are excited to soon welcome those thrashing little arms and legs in her womb into the world.

Lest you worry that I have been too free and bored this past week, rest assured I have still been hard at it.  As of today, our half-acre of garlic is all mulched with some 130 bales of straw.  On Tuesday, Stan came out and helped split, haul and stack firewood on a strangely warm November day.  I feel thankful to have been able to get the farm closed down for the Winter before a new, as-of-now mysterious job arrives.  

We do still have ample amounts of sweet potatoes, parsnips and garlic available.  If you are interested in purchasing any of these items in bulk, let me know.  It is a little difficult to plan at the moment, but we will figure out a way to get the veggies to you sometime soon.

Thanks again for being a part of our CSA, for making this community such a good and giving place, for nurturing our budding family and for making it clear that life is a rich, sweet smelling soil that only gets better.

We will send out an email in the near future announcing the arrival of….
