Uncle

Hey there. Long time no write. Yeah…well…been working hard, trying to find some sleep, enjoying the presence of someone new, beautiful and profound in my life, and also just riding the post-solstice, post-peak, post-energy of the summer phase (for me) as I navigate and look toward the fall, winter, next year, and beyond. The obviousContinue reading “Uncle”

The Rising

Good morning everyone– A quick but likely verbose note before heading into today’s market. A teary-eyed (after she left…) and fond farewell yesterday to Keeley (below) as she left for her new home.  Four other pups appear sold (two possibly leaving today and two over the next week) which leaves three looking for homes.  AllContinue reading “The Rising”

Pre-market thoughts for 9/20…

Good morning.  Just some thoughts before loading up and heading in… Evidently the DDA (if they are the ones who decide this) are considering cancelling or shortening in its duration the Wednesday Sara Hardy Farmers Market–due to poor turn out.  This is all I have heard and how I have heard it.  It’s an interestingContinue reading “Pre-market thoughts for 9/20…”

Farm Update for Friday, September 15th

Well, seasonal change is affecting many things here on the farm.  First and foremost egg production is dropping.  My chicken egg numbers have dropped to about half of what they were two weeks ago.  I think many of my chickens are now molting.  Small feathers everywhere…  They’ve leveled off but the fact remains that IContinue reading “Farm Update for Friday, September 15th”

Pre-Market Note for Saturday, August 12

Good morning, Just a brief note before applying the accelerator– Hope to see you all this morning.  Not sure who ordered the sprinkles but they are supposed to wane around 8am.  This is all good.  High (in Fife Lake) of only 73 today and low tonight of 49?  Wow…sorry–easily distracted. I have three jars ofContinue reading “Pre-Market Note for Saturday, August 12”

Dear loyal and deserving customers, Some of you may still be wondering if you will see us at the Mercado in the GT Commons this season.  For now the answer is “no” and I have no idea when it might be “yes.”  I fatefully caught up with the market master on the last day ofContinue reading “How to Shop Morganic Farm in the Winter”

Swim in the Snow?

Mother nature is making up for the warm and beautiful fall with some winter weather coming in now.  We woke up to a heavy blanket of snow settling down nicely on the trees and across the ground, and we’re expecting even more the next few days! The ducks still love to come out, in spite ofContinue reading “Swim in the Snow?”
