My life with my farmer and our six children. Made possible by massive amounts of caffeine.

The pumpkin patch is going strong, and in just two weeks, the farm season will be done for another year. In spite of the fact that I love what we do, I always breathe a sigh of relief when another season is safely behind us. The busy days of harvest are behind us, and the days of regrouping, reconnecting, and reading good books around the wood stove are upon us. These next two weeks will be very, very busy, and the rest and slower pace of November is mighty appealing right now.
However, I know that with the advent of winter comes the advent of the rain, cold, and grey. We take full advantage of these last few golden days with long walks, lessons done outside, and any excuse to go outside seized upon as one last chance to soak up the sun's warm rays. The potatoes are dug, squash is harvested, apples are (still) waiting to be sauced, and I am ready to hunker down for a winter's rest. Two more weeks. I think I can make it!
