Christmas goodies, oh and snow of course...lots of it

We haven't harvested any flowers since our Thanks Giving finale but that doesn't mean to say we haven't been creative so now we are enjoying putting our feet up. Though clearly Jamie is doing slightly more of this than I am (he has broken his foot and is on crutches).

As you know Farmer's don't really ever stop producing... so after a brief pause we faithfully returned to the markets and craft fairs with our teas, herbal salves, culinary seasoning, tinctures, flower essences and new this year - Massage Candles. Jamie's wooden ornaments and awesome dried flower baubles were the first to sell out. It was great to have so many customers returning for their favourite things.
Christmas has been a snowy affair. Not so great for someone on crutches (Jamie) guess who is doing the shovelling (Fay). It's all a lovely winter wonderland, the snow covers a multitude of sins (jobs that never got finished, yards that didn't get cleared, fields overgrown with weeds etc..). It's definitely time to take a break as another great year comes to an end.
