Here we are. October. Over halfway through October actually. The end of my second season farming flowers, selling bouquets and peddling perennials. Markets are done for the season and our last wedding of the year was a little over a week ago. I wish that meant that I could breathe a sigh of relief and relax, but there is still quite a bit of work in the farm to do before I’m done for the year. Honestly, I haven’t even managed to pull my dahlias out of the ground yet, and I am praying that the weather holds until I can. What is with this October, anyway? Luckily we didn’t see any of the snow that the surrounding areas had but it has been such a cold, wet and dreary month! The rain makes working in the farm a muddy miserable mess. Dillon and I braved the rain for several hours yesterday and we were able to get quite a few plants pulled and a few of the raised beds cleaned out and I am so thankful for some progress! Hopefully it will clear up enough by next weekend that the plastic that is now sitting in layers on my pathways has a chance to dry so that I can get it folded and stored. The storage shed . . . . that’s ANOTHER project that needs to be tackled one of these days! Maybe mother nature will have mercy on me and the really cold weather will hold off until December so that I can get everything done? I hope so!!
