Winter Solstice nears (the shortest day and the longest night of the year) and farmers are drawn indoors, where there is light in the early evening. I enjoy scientific essays when there’s time, and I recently scanned Rachel Carson’s beautiful essay, The Sunless Sea. Her descriptions of our oceans and the life within are still riveting reading. And it makes me think of how I still revel in the complexities of good soil, teeming with its natural complexities.

As we’re heading into our holiday season and some of you will be traveling, please remember the farm continues on with it’s cycles of planting and harvesting.
