November is a great time to reflect on the season. The work slows down, but there is still an urgency to tie up loose ends. We still need to harvest the rest of our fall crops, move the chickens closer to our infrastructure for winter, shut off water and blow out lines, close up and fix our high tunnels, and some last mowing and clean up in the field. We have accomplished so much this year. Our cookbook was released in the Spring and we have some special dinners that will accompany the book. We preserved many, many pounds of produce. We hosted over 4 large farm tours, taught over 1000 elementary kids about radishes, and hosted an Outstanding in the Field dinner. 8 lamb, 5 hogs, and 2 steer were raised and butchered and became a special on Agricola’a menu. We also harvested tons of vegetables for Agricola, our CSA, and for the West Windsor Community Farmers Market. I write this post so I can look back next year and be reminded what we accomplished. Ideas for next year are already in progress and I look forward to another season.
