HAPPY NEW YEAR! I woke up this morning thinking about pruning blackberries and grapes and maybe a couple of the trees in the orchard.. oh, and the peach tree. Then I thought about planting some of the Christmas nuts we got from Badgersett. Maybe not though. Maybe in the forest... hmmm... Then I thought about breakfast, we've got a ton of eggs. Then I thought about baking bread, gotta feed the starter first. Then I thought about getting out of bed... guess I need to to that first, huh?
May you all be blessed with LOADS of the goodness that comes from hard work and the sweet earth.
