It is! the first snow is here! It won't last but it is a promising beginning. It also helps spur me to get the beds mowed and tarped, field equipment cleaned and put away, and the chicken huts electrified before more comes.
There is still some dead tomato vines to take down (great for a cold rainy day), tools to be oiled and organized so they are ready to go next season, and kittens to teach the house rules to.
But now there is time to sleep in and still be up before the sun, to read some books or catch up on movies, and to cook something more than frozen meals. I can catch up on hose projects like more painting and going through all the stuff that I don't need.
There are still the microgreens to seed, water, and harvest as well as bins upon bins of seeds saved from this season to thresh and prep for planting or sale (and the accompanying computer work to design the packets and update the website!)
But, thankfully, the overall pace is slowed and now it is time to recover, regroup, and plan for the winter.
It's a good thing log cabins have deep window sills so all the kittens can watch the Starlings and the Deer at the same time. They only get grumpy when I disturb them and get their hopes up for more treats!
What's available this week?
I'm Farmer Megan with a life full of cackles, clucks, quacks, weeds, crazy kitten, and one tiny, senior, blind dog.
