Let's get our 2016 off to a great start!

Had our first farm meeting yesterday, and so there is a pretty extensive ToDo list to tackle today: get the appointment schedule with the orthopedic doctor for my knee, order supplies for making potting soil, order seeds, continue promoting the farm shares...

Cabbage, broccoli and kale seedlings are hardening off in the bright sun of this chilly morning. Heading out to the tunnels soon to give the chard a radical harvest. Glad I don't have to work in the wind. I hate the wind...

We didn’t can as much this year because we put those hours into building a few more low tunnels. I have a ton of jars to organize and store. Organizing closets and cupboards are great jobs for these too-soon-dark January evenings. We also watch TV in January...decadence. We’ll take recommendations!

Perhaps like a few others, I put on a few pounds in December, and the bumb knee is helping with plans to getting back into my jeans comfortably. Last winter I maintained my weight by walking 5-6 miles a day. This year, I think I’ll pull my bike out, but not today. See comment about the wind above.

You? Got plans?
