Thank you for a wonderful 2007 farm season!
As the end of this farming season falls upon us (along with the snow), I have spent much time reflecting and considering a question I am always asked "Are you glad it's over?" No, I'm not "glad". But I am looking forward to spending some time on new projects, cleaning the house, fixing that leaking sink, baking bread again, volunteering in my son's classroom, and maybe even sleeping in a few times.
I've had a song on my mind the past few days which sums up the way I feel about farming. (Let me first confess to you that I like a wide variety of music which I often sing out loud to annoy my husband and embarrass my children.) The song is from the 1970's, "Thank you for the Music" by ABBA. Now you are either 1) laughing, 2) have no clue what I'm talking about, or 3) recalling the lyrics to yourself and wondering how in the world I can relate this song to farming.
I'm going to take liberties here and replace a few of the words to the chorus:
So I say
Thank you for the farming, the work we're doing
Thanks for all the joy it's bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without this way of life, what are we?
So I say thank you for the farming
For giving it to me
There it is folks. That's how I feel these past few days. Cheesy, but true!
THIS IS YOUR LAST CSA FOOD DELIVERY FOR THE YEAR!
Your share will include:
Red Norland Potatoes
The garlic you are getting this week is the leftovers from what we put aside to plant. It is a little beat up, but it tastes just as good as the "pretty" garlic we sell.
Please continue to check back to the website for more farm updates and information on joining the CSA next year. I will also be sending out an email notice as we get more organized.
Enjoy! :) Tara
