Well, yet another November week has slipped away…
The leaves have nearly all blown away and the pastures are losing their verdant color. Late fall has come to the hill.
The weather and his “helpers” are really slowing the project. He’s hoping to get it finished before the winter weather sets in.

Then, almost before we knew it, it was time to pack up the trailer for the last Market of the season.

We had a great day! It was our second best “last day of the market” ever. A big thank-you to all our customers for making it possible for us to make a living at what we love.

very few leftovers this week!
At the end of the Market, some of the vendors took the time to have a group lunch. It was a nice way to note the end of a great Market year. Maybe we can make it an annual event.
It looks like this season was #2 in all-time sales. Congratulations to all the vendors who work so hard to make the Market a success!
Today is cold…real cold. It was 17* at morning choretime and the wind is blowing quite fiercely, so it feels far colder. It’s a good day to sit by the woodstove and plan out my Thanksgiving menu.

That last market of the season looks such a lovely occasion.ReplyDelete
Not sure how much those dogs are helping.
As usual the cats have the most sense, staying in in the warm.
