This year I'm so thankful that I have a job I love! After 25 years in Facility Management and the last 18 as a Facility Manager, being a CSA farmer is awesome. Each time I get to witness Bluejays chasing a Hawk, a calf being born, a Green Heron stalking the pond, or simply play with my dogs during a quick break from gardening, I'm thankful. I'm thankful for all the members who believed in me enough to go through the first year of this new endeavor, and the ones who have pledged to support the farm next season. I'm thankful for friends who have helped and supported in getting the house and farm to the point it is now. If you're lucky enough to have good friends, take care of them and nurture your relationships because you never know when you're going to need them.
Take time this season to be thankful for local farmers who work really hard to provide good quality, fresh produce for you and your families. During these trouble economic times, support your local CSA and enjoy a season's bounty of healthy, fresh vegetables. May God Bless each and every one of you.
