We did have a very Merry Christmas celebration here in Western North Carolina and trust the same is true for all of our friends and CSA Members–past and present.
December was a busy month. I traveled to my Family Farm of Origin in The Land of Big Tractors to visit my parents, extended family, and community friends while Robert stayed behind to clean up the 2018 Gardens. Robert worked hard during the weather appropriate days. Unfortunately, we had enough moisture to water log the fields and he was not able to complete the task. Last night and today, we received well over five inches of additional rainfall on saturated grounds. The result is the most extensive flooding we have ever witnessed on our property and additional clean up work.
Yes, those are whitecaps in the field!
It will soon be 2019! I have already cleaned up the greenhouse so that it is ready and waiting for us to start seeds in late February. There is a lot to be said for a glass protected working environment.
Our first wish for the New Year is that some dry weather and sunshine will come to WNC. We are so glad the temperature was warm so we did not get more snow. Those fourteen inches of snow we got in early December were enough for the season! We wish a Happy New Year to one and all.
