The great thing about running a farm is that it really satisfies those of us with an energetic (read: totally obsessive), gotta-stay-busy personality type. The To-Do List is always abundantly full of tasks - especially this spring as we were transforming a plot of pasture into our beautiful new Five Foot Farm site. We would finish one project and immediately start thinking of the next 5 jobs. It's was awesome... and we're so glad it's done.
Now that it's fall and our harvest schedule has slowed we thought it would be fun to put our feet up and look over our Done List - all of the huge things that we accomplished this spring!
As first generation farmers we didn't know jack about how to do most of these things when we started last year. We are super grateful for our encouraging mentors who offered excellent advice and help every step of the way.
