As the daylight hours grow shorter we are still hurrying to finish all the projects that need to be done before frozen ground and a thick layer of snow eliminate our work possibilities. Our garlic is now planted and our greenhouse is full of spinach and kale that is ready now and other winter hardy greens that will be ramping up in February and March, we hope. Before summer is a distant memory I wanted to take the time to thank the many people that helped out on the farm this growing season, and highlight a few projects that we were able to work on. Often day to day routine work such as animal care, planting, weeding, watering and harvesting take the majority of our time- so when we are able to have an extra pair of hands around to work on other projects that makes all the difference on a farm with no paid employees! Thank you to all friends, neighbors and visitors that helped us create progress and grow food at Peace of Earth Farm this summer.
