Winter's work and winter's rest

February is nearly here, which means the farm season begins. We start our seed sowing in just a few weeks, and hardly feel like we've been away from the fields.

This winter we've worked on our greenhouse, seed ordering and planning. And then there's the chores that never go away: collecting compost, harvesting vegetables, cleaning tools and caring for the chickens. And we must be caring well, because take a look at that egg in the picture... wish I knew which one of our ladies was laying that one.

But don't let me steer you wrong, we've also had time to rest a bit, taking a short trip to Maine, relaxing by evening fires, thinking, and writing our thoughts... rejuvenating for the next season, and we can't wait.
