Wow! What a season this has been. So, so, so many things to be grateful for; excellent staff, amazing volunteers, decent harvest considering the wet and cloudy season, wonderful CSA members, lots of new friends, community support, all the new improvements and classrooms, getting to live our passion, the list goes on and on. Truly. 

I am ready to slow down a bit and regroup. It has been a busy season with so many exciting opportunities. We have been all over North West Ohio talking on a variety of topics - the most popular is our Apron Program. It is such an honor to share the heartwarming stories of family memories. I enjoy learning new stories and have been gifted some incredible aprons that are safely nestled in my collection waiting to be shared. What a gift. 

The farm is coming together beautifully and with the hard work of our staff and volunteers it was a successful season. We could not do what we do without these amazing people. This season we had a lot of young people - what a blessing that has been. Schooner and I get to enjoy being "parental" to a certain degree and everyday we are humbled by witnessing the awe and wonder in these young folks. 

We are very grateful to our CSA Members. Many have been with us for several years and we had a few new ones, too! What joy it is to watch children think of the farm as their own and scurry out to pick berries or check on crops. It was a rough year with so much rain and cloudiness, so a few crops were not as plentiful but we certainly had a lot of variety to make up for that. The huglekultur mounds proved to be invaluable with all the flooding in the spring. 

Thankful, grateful and fortunate are we as the season ends and we look forward to a little down time to plan for 2016. Soon enough the mailbox will be bursting with seed catalogues and I will be lost in the fray. Many thanks to our members, visitors, staff and volunteers for a wonderful season and we look forward to making new memories in 2016.
