We've had warm, wet weather. Farmer Adam says we've had 19" of rainfall MORE this fall/winter, than normal. And the past few days have given us temperatures in the low 70's. The winter garden, which has barely grown, has suffered, and the wheat and barley field is looking downright peaked, as my mother would say!
The warmth has confused some plants, like this apple tree:
I'm still making wreaths. I sold a medium-sized one at Saturday's farmers' market, and I made a new oval one Sunday afternoon. That's my favorite time to go outside and wrangle vines. It's quite peaceful. I love taking the chaotic disorder of a massive tangle of vines, and turning it into an orderly, contained wreath.
