The last of the farm crew finished up friday and while there are still things to harvest and a few tasks to complete in the fields we are mostly done for the year. In addition to harvesting and packing for the Late Fall Share (still shares available) I'll be cleaning up and putting equipment and supplies away for the cold months ahead.
I always look forward to the beginning of each new season and now the quiet months ahead, without a crew to manage or daily "must dos", are just what the doctor ordered. This was our fifteenth year growing food at this farm and while I am proud of what we were able to offer all of you each week, I am tired. The long stretch of dry and hot and a shortage of hands to get things done made it a tough season behind the scenes. There is one Mainer that is hoping for a cold snowy winter by the wood stove.
The first Late Fall Share is tomorrow. If you haven't signed up and would like to, send us an email. Coming to the farm after voting, what could be better?
