After several days of balmy, pleasant weather, we are battening down the hatches in preparation for the next arctic blast! I am sure all of the trees and plants are a little bit confused as to what is going on. Thankfully the strawberries like the cold weather, as long as it isn't sub-zero and doesn't last for days and days. The Farmer would much rather see 100 degree days as 28 degree days. He claims it is much easier to take clothes off, than pile clothes on. I grew up in Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah, I will take THIS cold any day of the week. Hopefully the 5,000 onions that we planted will agree with me. The girls are all coming along in their pregnancies, as we are noticing the "saddle bag" look and the telltale waddle. We are making progress in our preparations to open the first weekend in March. We just had a beef processed and the meat is wonderful, so we will have ground beef in the market, we are also going to have our first round of pork. Delicious smoked bacon and several sausage varieties will be available. I am coming near the end of fruit in the freezer, so there will be a selection of preserves. A hint of things to come on the farm.....Spring festival in May, fresh fruit ice cream, berry picking, bigger assortment of homemade baked goods, and much, much, more! For the record, we only sell what we make, bake, or grow here on the farm! From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!
