My eyes are still getting adjusted from being out in the blinding
whiteness of the snow--everything looks dim and dark when you first
come in compared to outside. We didn't get the 2-3 inches that it takes
to fully cover everything with a full blanket of snow, but the
temperature has hovered under 10 degrees at night for the past week and
not over the mid twenties during the day--which froze our pond 3-8
inches--thick enough for us to skate around on it! It was the first
time in the past several years that it has frozen that solid, and the
kids (Dad included) enjoyed it fully!
We are finalizing the plans we've made for 2010 and starting to implement them. We are sending our seed orders out, searching all over for the best deals on the best equipment that we can afford, and trying to set up CSA drop offs that will be most convenient for our customers. It is amazing that even though we finished selling produce last month, we are getting ready to plant starting next month!
I want to let each of our CSA members that helped us by recommending us for SARE scholarships for the 2010 SSAWG conference know that we received them--Thanks! that conference will be a huge help!
