Week #1 of the Winter

December 10, 2011

This week's harvest:

Sweet Potatoes
Butternut Squash
Daikon Radish
Salad Turnips

This week's farm news:

Well, here we are... nearly mid-December already! Seed catalogs are beginning to arrive in our mailbox. As much as we love to fantasize about our future gardens and the coming spring, we aren't quite ready to dive into these catalogs... not just yet. They are being tucked away in our seed catalog drawer for later. Right now we are doing our best to take a little respite, to take some deep breaths, and to have some time of reflection & renewal. We're also busy keeping the family and fires well fed, crafting and tucking away surprises for the coming holidays, playing games, and reading lots of stories. Our version of hibernation. It's actually such a short window of "down time" for us. Practically as soon as the day length starts to once again increase, so does the bustling energy of farm life. We love that and loook forward to it, but over these past ten years of farming and homesteading we have really come to value and honor these December days. Blessings to all of you!!
