Despite my mothering mania and perpetual lack of sleep, our farm is doing well. We are in the midst of deciding how we want next year to go. How much we want to plant, how we want to change things. I'm so, SO happy we got a perennial section in, even if it all dies. That was our fall feat this year, especially with the ridiculously wet season we have had. We had a record rainfall yesterday in our area. All the fields around here looked like ponds, including ours. We made it into the December edition of Our State Magazine. Awesome picture of our booth, makes us proud. And we even got to go for a pleasure walk at Ayr Mount with the family. Love that place.

This has been a wet season. Dramatically wet. Rain everyday for a over a month. It's easy to make an analogy to dancing when it comes to how we work with the weather, but this year the dance has been taken over by a solo-performing-rain-making fool that just likes to watch himself parade around the dance floor and not care for a partner. It's finally dried out enough for us to do some tractor work, possibly enough for us to plant some poor rootbound plants that have been camping out on the start table for a month too long. We've moved on with the attitude of better luck this fall and winter. The good news is that we picked an almost 3 1/2 lb tomato! We made a crew lunch with it, bacon sandwiches with huge thick slices of the beast. The sandwich will not be forgotten anytime soon it was so good!
