What’s been going on!
20 degrees this morning and looks like we won’t get above freezing for the first time this winter. Really just a quick note to let folks know we will not be at market tomorrow morning. Sometimes it is just makes sense to sit one out. As I have said before most of the crops we are harvesting this time of year are in suspension, cold storage in the field, and can wait a week or more until we pick them. Plus we are having too much fun in the house.
The sustained cold week has forced us inside and allowed us to catch up on emails, reading and for me finishing up the year end record keeping chores. Betsy has had many hours in front of the fire place reading and studying Italian and we both have been cooking. A large pot of turkey soup spent the day on the stove yesterday made with the carcass of a bird we smoked the day before.
So we hope you all are staying warm and if the frozen precipitation falls you don’t have to get out and drive in it. If you are in town you should go to market tomorrow even if it is cold, it will be sunny and there will be plenty of good things to buy. We will be home, just throwing another log on the fire. See you next week!
