winter reflections

Hello everyone. Winter solstice is upon us and we have been tasting real winter weather already.  Our carrots and beets survived that cold snap we had, below a mulch of leaves covered with plastic and sand bags. It will sure be nice to have the days getting longer soon; spring shall return.

Andy has been making plans for next year, and placing orders for seeds. We also wrapped up our Garden Box program this week. This Saturday is our last time at the Abbotsford Farmer’s Market until next Spring .

Thank you to all our customers for your support and partnership in our sustainable and organic farming effort this year. It has been a very rewarding endeavour that we look forward to continuing and improving on. We hope you have a Merry Christmas!

    What a year of learning it was! In helping / advising others you already knew so much, yet you learned so much more. Irrigation pumps, volts and amps, marketing, pellitized seed, flame weeders, weed barriers, drainage, clay soils, peat soils, a super wet spring, trellising, weed seeds. Even crop losses were not total losses — knowledge was gained — late tomato blight, slugs girdling peppers, spud blight, voles in the melons, carrots, and beets. Plus the Miracles: irrigation water supplies, electrical sources, HOJ for a delivery / pickup point, …. And the Blessings: health, safety, wisdom, stamina for 12 hour days, customers, many crop successes, resistance to rain, bugs and frost, and support from your families.

    May God Bless you with many more successful years to come.

    Love Dad A.
