Please accept my apologies for any bombardment of your inbox in the next several days as I get things updated on the website. I THOUGHT I’d found a work around to keep you all from getting notifications with each post, but it may not be working. It’s a bit hard to tell from this end.
Most of the backdated posts are pulled from my newsletters last season. So if you are one of my veggie share people, you may feel some deja vu.
It actually is a bit fun to review last year’s season in this condensed way. Plus I’m loving seeing all that colour when all outside right now is white and assorted neutral tones.
Rest assured, I’m deep into crop planning and inventorying seeds.
In six weeks I’ll get my first little seeds started and the growing lights turned on. By that time the days will be longer and there will be more daylight to run our off-grid system.

Customers were interested, or at least very kind, and let me prattle on about the wonders of Saint Pierre, Cherokee Purple and Matt’s Wild Cherry. I also learned some great new tips for using catnip and lemon balm. I could have easily spent all my earnings with the other vendors at the market. Vending next to the chocolatier…deadly. And so good. I will have to pace myself.
However, there was quite the wind-up before this long-anticipated day. So many things to learn, so many things to consider. Where to start? Continue reading “To Market”
So here we are on the verge of Thanksgiving. We have so many things to be thankful for, even though we can get caught up in the day-to-day whirlwind of life: school, chickens, garden work, cleaning up to host family for the holiday.
I’ve slowed down enough for a quick reflection here, just before I dash to meet the bus. If a picture is worth a thousand words, here are a few thousand words of gratitude from our homestead to yours.
Wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving this weekend…or in November…or both!
