list carnage begins
Lettuce in the hoophouse, just waiting to be put on a list
Although the nights still bring a bit of a chill, the sunshine of the days brings enough warmth to shed the top couple of layers of clothing and lessen the dread of sticking fingers in the soil. Nathan and Shannon began work on Monday and we are settling into the rhythm of the daily farm work and crossing things off lists. I am an obsessive list maker. I’ve got lists for every aspect of life, hanging about in every corner of my world. And there’s no glory like the glory of crossing things off from said lists. I guess that sort of make Nathan and Shannon gladiators. Since their arrival, there has been carnage of the lists. Beautiful scribbles everywhere. With the settling in of the rhythm, comes a deep satisfaction of shrinking lists. Now if Mother Nature would get on board, there will be harvest lists to add to that satisfaction.
We are going ahead with our Lenoir drop point and have just a few harvest shares left. You can get more information at www.tumblingshoalsfarm.com. Please pass along this information to your friends in Lenoir who might be interested. Also, we are planning our fashionably late but grand entrance to the downtown Hickory farmers’ market Saturday, April 13th when we are predicting our crops to catch up from the cold spell we’ve been surviving. We’ll see you there!
