My proud farmer busy at the winter farmers market I spent last week rescuing carrots from the hoop house. This week she gave me off since we were in the middle of a snow storm.



Everything is deep under snow here now, and I'm already tired of shoveling.



But the good news is that class starts Tuesday! The one I was registered for was cancelled so I made a last minute switch to Botany.



And finally, I have a recipe for soaked oatmeal to share



Merry Christmas everyone. Thanks for joining me this year.

I saw one of my friends post a photo collage of her favorite moments in the year and decided to try one. And as I gathered photos, I realized this had been a really amazing year!



I met Eliot Coleman and had dinner with Joel Salatin. I watched my chickens go from chicks to freezer and learned to milk a cow thanks to the fabulous Carilee. I met Michelle and got to work at her farm and join her CSA. I was in two different meat CSA's including Joe's. I interviewed at a grass-fed farm (they totally hated me, but still...). I took a butchering class and started college again. I went on trips to Illinois and Ohio/Kentucky. I did my first plumbing fix and jumped straight ahead to remodeling a room. And somehow found time to garden, cook, can, ferment, dehydrate, hike, camp, and fish. Oh, and nerd it up at the day job.

Not bad 2016! Now lets see how much we can fit into next year

I've always thought you are able to fit WAY more things into a day than most, but probably what it is is that you don't watch any tv cause your too busy doing all the other things you want to do. Starting in the new year, me too! Your such an inspiration, thank you for keeping your thread here active, its my favorite!)

You certainly have had a wonderfully productive 2016 and can't wait to see what you do with 2017!
