Arctic Blast

I don't know about you, but we were all a bit colder this week. All the greens and some of the perennial herbs are under row cover to protect them from frost damage, especially since this cold period follows an unusual warm period in December. Fortunately, though, that warmth means we actually got a bit of growth in the spinach - we will be bringing that to market today and tomorrow!

Still, ice is the name of the game. The deer leave lots of tracks; they dig through the crust of snow to get the remains of the last fall vegetables in the field. We are spending a lot of time reviewing our numbers and memories from 2015, and working on all the planning we will need to make 2016 happen.

Ben would like to share a hearty soup recipe that he made us for lunch earlier in the week: http://whatleyfarm.com/recipes/2016/1/7/whatleys-carrot-cumin-soup-for-a-crowd

See you at market!
