When people ask how this season has been, I usually respond with the noncommittal, “We’ve had better”. The more accurate response of “Worst yet” just sounds too dire. True, one whole field was under water for most of June and July, and we ripped out a good chunk of tomatoes before they set any fruit. But we also got to work side-by-side in the sunshine and pick Sungold seeds out of our daughter’s eyelashes.
Brass tacks, any season that allows us to continue doing this crazy thing for another year is a good one. And despite all its challenges, the 2017 season passed that bar. We’ll be back next year to do things better and make new mistakes, and we hope you’ll be there with us. Until then, thanks for making this dream of ours possible and have a great winter!
