The hubris and ingenuity of humans

With a name like “Super blood wolf moon”, who would dare to resist?  So there we were, nipping outside for a quick look every few minutes, then sprawling out in front of the fire, well past our normal bedtime.  Turns out, we could have just watched it live on-line and skipped the most frigid night of the year! 

I loved that whole idea: the comfortable way to witness this phenomenal astrological event.  Does it get more 2019 than that?  Don’t get me wrong, I probably would have opted for that if my internet was fast enough (for a slow moving eclipse??), or if I had realized that was an option.  But still it makes me smile in awe of both our hubris and our ingenuity. I mean, who would think we could even do such a spectacular astrological event justice?  I mean, surely you need the frigid wind to heighten your senses in order to be able to process the appropriate amount of awe!  But of course we can! 

It with no small amount of hubris that we announce that we are about to have the best season yet on Tumbling Shoals Farm.  And you can share in that season by purchasing a share in the harvest.  You can find more details here, and register here.  You can always contact us with any questions or concerns you might have, or to set up a payment plan.

Of course, in order to have the best season yet on Tumbling Shoals Farm, we need to be preparing ground and planting for it already (yes, already!).  Which means that we need most of the space for the upcoming season that has been nourishing us this winter.  Which in turn means that we are not going to attend the winter farmers market in February. We just need the space (I swear it has nothing to do with the frigid temperatures and wind!).
