One of my favorite aspects of working on the farm is the community. I really enjoyed getting to know all of the people involved. Most of the interns went back to their homes to get back to “normal” life. It was so sad to see them go! I will miss them dearly. On the bright side, four of us will be staying…Ben, Jonathan and I will be apprentices and Shrader will be staying to work on a very special project (more about that later)! Here are the interns at the beginning of the summer:

And here are the interns (and a few others) at the end of the summer:

On September 25th, we went to the Joshua Wilton House for our end of season celebration dinner. It was a fine time with some fine food and wine. The soup course was especially delicious and “happy.”
I am currently enjoying some time off in Atlanta. I have to be back to work at Polyface on Oct. 15th. In the meantime, I am having fun working around the house, cooking and relaxing.
