Farm work is far from over. However, yesterday was the last day the farm stand was open to the public and we were busy working hard in the snow.
Kind of…….here is a photo gallery of what our day was like:
A few fist pumps to celebrate making it through a long and hard farm season!
Of course there was snow angels!
And Dunkin Donuts. Woot- Woot! (we all eat WAY to healthy 99% of the time!)
Taylor thought Santa had stopped by the farm when the coffee and donuts appeared out of no where!
But wait….we did work! lots of snowy leeks got harvested!
And 50 pound bags of potatoes got filled. I broke out in a sweat carrying these puppies!
And of course, Henry was there to help.
I can’t believe another season has come and gone. It feels so strange.
Taylor and I are going to be working all winter pruning apple trees and harvesting other veggies that are still available on the farm. But still…..the hardest and most rewarding part is over. Farm work is brutal. It makes me happy, sad, frustrated, and totally in awe of what I am capable of doing both mentally and physically.
There is nothing else on this earth I would rather spend my time doing than growing food.
If it wasn’t for the most nourishing and delicious ingredients I don’t think I could do this.
(Savory stuffed baked apple recipe tomorrow)
Blood, sweat, tears, and a whole lot more, at least we eat well!
Happy Halloween everyone. I will be back tomorrow with my apple recipe.
