As a part of this celebration, we're going to do some "retrospective" pieces. For those that have been with us for some time, you might enjoy seeing some of this to remind us all how far we've come. If you have not been with us all that long, you get the benefit of seeing where we've been without having to go through the growing pains with us!
For those who have interest, you may notice links in this post to other blog posts from 2010. They actually give a pretty good feeling for 2010, so feel free to take them and explore. If you want to see our "Top Ten" posts for 2010, you can take that link. They tend towards the humorous in most cases - so if you need a laugh, there you go!
|Durnik the tractor is a hit for more than the farmers.|
Rain, rain and more rain. This is the year that could have been the end of GFF, but instead it was the beginning of our re invention. Our first high tunnel went up in early July and the first harvests for the building occurred that fall. Durnik the tractor joined our farm, we held our first extended CSA Fall, added the portable feed bin and made a room for the turkeys in the newly dubbed "Poultry Pavilion." Oddly enough, we often forget that the year started with an emergency new furnace and a roof on the back porch/addition of the farm house. The latter was planned, of course, which is why the former happened immediately after.
|Many hands still meant alot of work!|
|Something we hope to never see again.|
|Peppers, not so good. Cucumbers? They loved it.|
|Our first crop in the high tunnel.|
Here's looking forward to a prosperous and enjoyable 2015 season. We don't expect perfection and we do expect difficulties. But, we know we'll do our best to address those difficulties and use our skills and tools towards what should be a great year!
