We also feel blessed by deer, and turkey, and chickens, and ducks, and a pantry full of vegetables and fruit. Whether it came from the field or foraged in the woods, or dropped on a city street. We have made good on our promise of sustainability.
In November we began to reflect on what is most important. In 2013, between interns, the growing season got away from us and weeds were everywhere, causing us to consider a better way. By New Year's Eve, we solidified a plan to grow smarter and manage better the gift of the land. Look for our new ideas coming in the posts for 2014. Hint: more perennials are in our future
But for now, let's look back to that cold December night when we gathered with friends.
On the periphery of the work to be done is the support of old friends. Each December 31, we gather to remember and to look forward at our individual and collective lives. We thought you might enjoy seeing a glimpse of those who don't necessarily do the hard labor, as much as bring their collective wisdom to the farm.
