It is with mixed feelings that we end the 2013 growing season. On one hand, I am relieved that the hard labor of the season is nearly over, and we are sliding into the cold months when there are far fewer chores to be done.
On the other hand, it is difficult to say goodbye to all the plants that we have tended this year. We raised all of our plants from seed, some starting as early as February. And some plants are still producing food, but we need to clear the ground before the rains start in earnest. So they too must go on the compost heap. I know it sounds silly, but after working so hard to help these plants thrive and spending so many hours with them, it is hard to rip them out of the ground.
And so too, we say goodbye to our wonderful family of CSA members. Thank you for your support this year, thank you for choosing to eat local, and enjoy the rest of the year. I know we will.
