What do Farmers do in the Winter?

The quiet of winter has, at last, settled over the farm.

Winter is the time of year when we take the chance to breathe in.  We read and research, we meet with other growers, we attend workshops and conferences, we plan for the upcoming season and reflect on the one that has passed.  We look back on pictures of the past season and marvel at the miraculous growth and bounty that the farm provides.  We cook and enjoy stored root vegetables and jars of preserved summer fare.  We watch and listen to birds at the feeder who remind us that, while the land may seem quiet and asleep at this time of year, it is still most alive!  There’s lots to do and even more to ponder…
