Hello everyone. I hope everyone is well. Autumn can be a tough time - but it also can be a beautiful time.
As my family and I end our September and begin our October, I find myself still very busy, and fighting to stay on top of my academic promises. The struggle is real, and this weekend I took it a bit easy. I've been brainstorming a bit on some ways to offer up more products as we speed along towards the barren time of year. If anyone is looking for something specific, let me know and we can see if it is something I can offer.
Talk as begun to switch from harvest to when we will expect the first snowfall. I am hoping it holds off until November, but I (as well as several others I have spoken with) suspect we will have an earlier start than that.
The animals are all doing well, and I've brought in what plants I can overwinter. This week will be the third week of my six week course in beginning farming - half way there! I've come up with a tentative mission statement for Hoppy Mountain Farm too.
I've spent a good amount of time this past week envisioning my dream for what Hoppy Mountain will become. I'm hoping that as it develops, I will be able to share the vision a little puzzle piece at a time with you all.
