We have finished our last market and now we begin our hibernation for the winter. It has been an amazing year with some ups and downs. A few mishaps in the greenhouse led to not planting everything intended, however the crew pulled through and we made it up with consistent hard work. We completed our first season for our CSA and our relationship with Agricola is growing and evolving. Every year I try and take on a little more, improve what I have done in the past, and make sure I am building the foundation of a healthy ecosystem for our workers and the larger community. It was our first year at West Windsor Community Farmers Market and we really enjoyed being able to interact with our community directly. Now we will attend a few Farmers Conferences and sharpen our skills for next year. Crop planning, big ideas, season summaries, and field maps will be worked on and we will be ready to go, with baby Van on our back, next spring.
