And my mood is just as capricious as the weather in the fall. Some days I wake up and I think this is it. It just cant get any better than this. Other days I wake up, full of dread and gloom, with so little to look forward to in the upcoming months.
And I feel a similar disconnect as the CSA approaches its end. On the one hand, there is an overwhelming sense of relief. We did it. We actually grew enough food. And I think people enjoyed it. But on the other hand, we love CSA days. There is no doubt in my mind that the CSA model is the most rewarding way to sell vegetables. The fact that we get to talk to you all every week, hear about how you enjoyed our labors, find out new and creative ways to approach cooking, is beyond satisfying. Its inspiring. Every time we feel inclined to give way to laziness…well who really cares if we get this last spinach planting in the ground…we think of you and we remember that you do care and it does matter.
So thank you for making farming so much fun and inspiring us to be better farmers! And be sure to get out there and enjoy those perfect fall days.
