Well, we blinked and there went summer. With haying, packing maple syrup, witnessing new calves, and making plans for fall and winter we haven't had a chance to post anything lately. So we're starting back up, fall resolution! A post a day! Okay, maybe just a post a week.
Deep into fall, the leaves are full of color and all over the ground. Tree branches are more and more bare and the view from the farm confirms what we all feel in our bones: winter is coming. Time for cousins to chase each other through the leaves, to drizzle maple syrup over roasted squash, to throw that extra blanket on the bed. On the farm, we have been mulching the apple trees heavily and getting ready to put them to sleep. We are moving firewood into the sugarhouse and thinking about tapping in early winter. As the cycles of the year progress, so do we. Happy fall everyone!
