Winter 2009

December 21, 2009

Sitting here in the cold of winter near a warm woodstove while the wind blows around outdoors. Today on the shortest day of the year, the winter solstice I feel immense gratitude for all our garden abundance..The walk in still holds leeks, beets, greens, turnips, apples’ onions’ carrots,, cabbage, chestnuts and garlic. The freezer is also stuffed and the cellar is full.

Despite 45 days of rain this last summer, a slug epedemic and porcupine destruction our efforts have paid off. The land that offers so much will continue to sustain us as we enter into uncertain times.

I want to continue my goal of getting more people to see how possible food production really is. Because when you grow it yourself you can eat the good, the too small, the ugly, the ones with bad spots etc. You arent just eating that perfect bunch that was so carefully selected for your dinner plate. I had one customer tell me she was saving $75 a week on the grocery bill.

A little bit of abundance goes  a long way.
