Garlic Planting 2012

Greetings Dear Friends of the Farm,
Today it really looked & felt like winter, perfect timing for the last big harvest.  Tomorrow will be the final CSA pick-up, and the Woodstock market ended a few weeks ago.. grateful for a very abundant season!!!   We’ll be in the barn tomorrow (wed) chopping up the leftover veggies for our winter Kimchi & Sauerkraut, stop by for a visit if you like:) 
Better yet,  come by this Sunday (11-11) for our final community event of the season: 
the 3rd annual..Garlic Planting Party!
Come by any time after 12 to hang out and help with various projects,
plant some cloves into their beds around 2, and then before dark we’ll share a big pot of soup around the fire!
All are welcome, come by at any time. 
Most importantly, THANK YOU everyone who helped make this farm season possible.  For all the manure-hauling, tool-fixing, weeding, digging, veggie-washing, seed-growing, fence-building, veggie-buying & just stopping by…we are so grateful!  Looking forward to an even better next season!
Lots of Love from Clove Valley Road,
Aileah, Toby, Rio, Premilla, Ustya, Jens, Dave & Stella

Dear Friends & Neighbors,
Many hands makes Light and Joyful work!  There’s lots to do before this farm sleeps for the winter…moving the chickens, planting garlic, spreading compost and mulch, taking down the tipis, etc.    And… we hope to bring people together on the farm one last time.   So…you are all invited to our last community work-party of the season, which will culminate in a sunset feast around the fire.  We’ll have a work session from noon-5, come by for any part of that.  Anyone who lends a hand will be served a Lovingly prepared meal.. so please RSVP so I know how much to make.   And if you can’t come earlier than 5..come by anyway (the more the merrier) and celebrate the end of season and full moon with us! 
Much Love,
Aileah, Ustya, and the rest of us at Clove Valley CSA
