September

What a wild year it has been so far, with the mild winter, late cold frosts that devastated so many fruit trees, and then the hot dry stretches of summer, broken up by refreshing torrential downpours, like the one we had here last week.

While many of the students are back to class, and many others will leave this region, to return again either in the winter or next summer I’m happy to say “summer isn’t over yet.”

The gardens are growing prolifically and certain crops are starting to sweeten up with this cooler weather.

Here are a few pictures from the last year of life on the farm…
