Yes, our little family are McKinney's newest residents. And we're loving it! It's only been about a month, but it's obvious we're going to be very happy here, and just 10 minutes away from the farm to boot. Movin' to the country, people! Greeeeeeen acres is the place for me… Although with a 4,000 house development rapidly taking shape a stone's throw from the farm, it isn't going to be "country" for much longer.
Speaking of the farm, due to my ongoing embiggenment (and impending complete preoccupation, as I hear these "baby" people can be somewhat time-consuming), we're going to have a quiet fall and winter season. At this point, the plants put in at last frost are tired and picked out, the bugs are forming homeowners associations, and it's probably time for me to stop hoisting 30lb tubs of melons around town. There will still be food for a couple more weeks, though, so as always, just keep an eye on the Facebook page to see what's going on.
We'll hardly be resting, though - we have Big Construction Plans for the winter (including a building with walk-in cooler storage and a kitchen for jamming and pickling), and of course, I'll keep you up to speed on the action. We're ready to start inviting people to come enjoy our lovely little slice of green with us, whether to attend a cooking demo, wine tasting, yoga class, maybe a wedding?… We've more ideas than we know what to do with, but suggestions are always encouraged. What would you like to come over to the farm and do?
