“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.”
– Mark Twain
Well howdy! What could be a better welcome back to North Carolina from Hawaii than sub-freezing temperatures?! I don’t think it’s broken 32° yet today for Pete’s sake! I even saw that there was a small chance for snow in the wee hours of the morning tonight. Then, guess what? It’s going to be pushing 60° tomorrow. Hooray!
Let me tell you about Hawaii: Hawaii is a great place, full of sun and sand and amazing food and fantastic coffee. I had a wonderful trip, it was very relaxing, and incredibly satisfying to not think about the farm for a little while! I need to extend a very sincere thank you to my beautiful girlfriend, Sarah, and her wonderful mother and daughter, Sandra and Alex, for inviting me along on such a wonderful adventure! I have to admit, it’s taken me a little time to get back into the swing of things here on the farm, but I’m back, and getting back at it!
I look forward to seeing you tomorrow at the market! Matt will be at the NoDa Farmer’s Market, now inside the Neighborhood Theater, from 9am til noon, and I will be at the Winecoff Market, same place same time! We will be bringing you, and only you, lettuce heads, microgreens, radishes, and farm fresh, pasture-raised, non-GMO eggs! My girls wanted me to let you know that they’ve been working really hard to pop out them eggs for you, despite the cold and the rain, so the least you can do is pick up a dozen to show them how much their hard work means to you!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Lily and I are about to go start 40 trays of onions for next season. It’s exciting that we’re already getting started planting for next season. Surreal! Peace!
