“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
-Thomas A. Edison
Oh, hello! I didn’t see you there. But welcome, to another addition of the Street Fare Farm Newsletter! I’m so happy that you could join us today for another riveting episode, full of mystery and intrigue, immense joy, profound sadness, and just about every other emotion on the human spectrum! But, come now, let’s delve into this weeks report.
This week has been a relatively lax week on the farm. What with all the planting done, and the wonderfully cool autumn days we’ve been having, it was a great week to lighten up and take a breather for a moment! That’s not to say that there isn’t any work to be done. On the contrary, if I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times: there is always work to be done! Life is about balance, though, and, as Jack said, “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” Never do I want to be accused of such! Next week we’ll get back on track, the most pressing projects being harvesting of sweet potatoes and preparing the land for next years production! If you’d care to come lend a hand, or preferably, both of them, please do not hesitate to reach out!
I do hope that you all will come to see Matt and myself at our respective farmer’s markets tomorrow! Matt will be manning the booth at the NoDa Farmer’s Market, behind the Company Store and the Smelly Cat Cafe, from 8am to Noon, and I will be at the Winecoff Market on Winecoff School Road from 8am to Noon. We will have with us all sorts of vegetables for your culinary contentment, in the ways of arugula, mizuna, mustard greens, radishes, pac choy, tatsoi, lettuce heads, kale and turnips! And, of course, our girls have been working overtime this week to provide for you their incredible AND edible, pasture-raised, non-GMO eggs! I eat eggs every morning now, and attribute all my success to this fact!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and week to come. Be sure to spend quality time with those you love, for life is fleeting, and if we don’t live for the people in our life, then what, pray tell, is life? Cherish your friends and family, and let them know that you do. Be well!
