1 Year

It's Saturday it is raining and we had a good market this morning despite the light misty rain that was not supposed to happen at all. It is cool and the skies are leaden, like late October. So we took winter squash to market-appropriate.

Friday marks the first full year of farm ownership for us (also means this is almost a year old). It has been a real trip owning a farm, or any real estate, for that matter. We have come a long way in the past year turning this farm from a cow pasture into a produce market farm. We have put in grapes, several fruit trees a 1.5 to 2 acre garden. Planted perennial flowers around the pond and house. Cleaned up several tons of junk left here by the former denizens (sold a lot of it, made use of a lot, burned some and landfilled very little) and now have a working micro farm.

We are a lot further along than I imagined we would be at this time last year. The whole buying and moving to a new farm project seemed so massively overwhelming but we got to work and are building a nice place.

We still have work to do, lots of work.
