Tomorrow we are butchering 3 chickens... 2 plymouth rocks and 1 rhode island red. Matthew is bringing 5 or so other birds. Valerie will buy 5lbs of pea seed. I purchased seeds for 2012 from Territorial. I will keep my CSA to 10 people because of the joy and pay/benefits of my day job. I will not sell retail or to the Co-op... only a 1/4 acre versus 3/4 last year. Despite the reduction I am increasing my crop diversity and spiritual involvement. I can see my friends now. Smiling. Beautiful. Dirty. Soul=dirt+god's breath (not man=soul+body) means mud on our cheeks!
