My, my, where does the time fly to? It’s been quite awhile since I last posted and it’s not for lack of homestead happenings. In fact, there are too much happenings, so much so, I wish I could hire a full time blogger! No kidding, I can’t keep up with all the wonderful stories and goings on.
We’ve been busy with lectures, workshops, tours, film nights, music & food events and even a few shoots for upcoming pieces in magazines (one is going to be published in Europe). I can barely keep up with all the email requests! If you have emailed a recently, we’ll (hopefully), I will get back to you soon. Believe me, we wish we could do it all and handle everyone at once!
Whilst we are busy trying to keep up, we would like to know “how’s everyone?” Especially our readers out on the East coast?
The year has not been without a few “setbacks” of sorts, but we have faith things will work out in the end. For one, our super video techie, Jordanne, needs new software so she can easily upload all the footage she’s been taking.
After a brutally hot summer and somewhat sucky summer harvest, here, the weather has(finally) turned nippy, as the garden turns over to cooler crops and row covers to tuck the beds in for the winter. The garden isn’t the only thing prepping for winter; so is our backyard patio. We’ve had such a positive turnout to the weekly Sunday gatherings , folks want them to continue through the winter. That’s the good news. The bad news was how to figure out to do so in inclement weather! Over the last few weeks, the “winterizing” efforts have started to come together. The plan is to keep the cold and rain out and community events going through winter and we are getting there, thanks to a few generous donations and keeping our eyes focused on Craigslist!
The “winterizing” efforts are coming along nicely, if I do say so myself.
Along with growing community, our farm stand has expanded into a mini co-op featuring local farms and food. The farm stand is open every day, expect Saturday. New offerings this week: yummy seasonal honey, organic, raw (unpasteurized) almonds, dates and much more!
Drop by and support our mini market and stock up on these seasonal treats.
