Wow. Not something we are used to in “these here parts”. Down around 20 degrees this morning. Many things have gone brown overnight. I’ve had a little fire going most of the day. Lucky me. Stacked some firewood on the front porch. Then wandered around to the back of the garden and noticed there was still ice in the birdbath at 3:30 pm. Look closely at the photo to see the ice under the water in the middle.
What’s happening at the farm?
I just sent a list to the restaurants. I had to delete many crops. Broccoli, cauliflower, chard, chives, thyme, Yukina and the green tomatoes, all gone. Yesterday they picked the rest of the fennel crop. We should have a more reasonable presence at the farmer’s market this week.
I do love to see this change in the season, to allow the farm to slow down and regroup. From the earlier night, to the dark, cold mornings, everything feels still and quiet.
