I can’t believe it’s already mid November! Where has the time gone? I am embracing the change though, it has been really nice working on the farm with minimal stress. Recently, our “off season” duties have kept us busy, but not rushed, which is my favorite way to work.
We never get to sit on the job, so a nice break on a straw bale was a welcome change. Shhh, don’t tell our farm manager!
Some of our recent duties have been planting next seasons garlic and mulching it for the winter.
Driving a truck stacked high with a bunch of straw really makes you feel like a farmer. We all loved it!
However, the novelty wore off quickly. I still have straw in my clothing and a rash on my arms.
But…..we have nicely covered rows of garlic. I guess it’s worth it.
The only thing missing is not having Henry tag along with us.
He’s almost there. After Thanksgiving he will be able to come prune apple trees with us.
I am sure he can’t wait. Me on the other hand, I’m not so sure how I feel about pruning apple trees in the winter again. Brrrrrrrr.
Alright, off to work a little more. Potato leek soup is on the menu for later. One of my favorites!
