Sometimes getting back on the bicycle is harder than you would imagine. I took a break from almost three years of weekly blogging just before Christmas. I vowed several times to get back to it, and I found convenient excuses to start again. Over the past weeks there have been to many events and special occasion to recall them all. So I will go forward.
Looking at the calendar got my micro-farm juices flowing. New ideas and goals have been thought about, occasionally thinking them through fully, and plans have been developed. I am interested to see what will come to fruition. I will share those plans later as they develop. I am a bit nervous they will fail, and prefer to share potential (or actual) failure on my own terms.
I would like to share with you one of my winter projects. I have been co-managing a winter farmer’s market. You can see our Facebook page here: Corning Winter Farmer’s Market. It has been full of challenges. However, I have been very pleased to see our local farmers doing well.
The most significant story around the micro-farm has been the weather. I know for most of you in the US it’s the same story.
While we have weeks of cold and snowy weather. And. I think spring will never come.
We have a few very warm days and the snow melts.
We appear to be caught in a another bought of cold and snow. I am amazed at how warm 40 degrees Fahrenheit in the Sun feels. When the cold gets me down I do try to remember it is killing all those bugs and plants that do not belong here in the Northeast USA. So I look forward to a few less bugs this spring.
So here I sit and I am learning from the past, enjoying this season, and looking forward to the next season.
I hope all is well with you and yours.
