Late fall 2011

There are still a lot of vegetables in our days and weeks. I harvested 20# of brussels sprouts this morning from the field; the hoophouse is green with succulent arugula and spinach; leeks, carrots, parsnips and more are holding well in the walk-in cooler for fall CSA members and for the produce department at the Belfast Coop.
This season is the end of a long fall exhale. Around the first of the year we begin the greater farm inhale again with seed orders, tax preparation, wholesale account meetings and of course, CSA brochures, posters and membership efforts.
For the moment, we are loving up the last days of 2011.
We have been building fairy houses with the children,

enjoying tracks in the snow,

spotting sunny spaces to play

chasing rainbows,

enjoying each others' company,
and the company of elders. . .

Wishing all of you the very best of the season.
Because of a certain burst appendix (Abe's) this fall, we did not properly send the crew off with a word on this here blog. Stay tuned for the Thanks to the Crew, coming soon.
All the best from here, Polly
