Although winter can be brutal, and this one is torturing us with days upon days in the single digits, the continuous cold is beneficial for the farm. Dormancy keeps the farm from being overrun with insects come spring. It is essential for the strong survival of perennial plants.
In the stillness, we sit and dream of what can be. Dr Greg is going through his seeds and will make the new seed order soon. Robin is updating the website. The CSA will continue. See the Subscription Garden pages for latest details. Ideas are swirling with new friends for projects they will initiate in 2018 (no announcements yet).
From the window, we see a sharp shin hawk alight on a nearby tree branch. Greg snaps the photo.
Somehow we’ll get through this, although the forecast is gloomy.
