In Like a Lion

2014-02-26 12.37.11I can’t believe February is over! The highlight of our vacation was getting away for a few days with some of our good friends.  It was wonderful and a much needed get-a-way.  We talked by the fire, ate good food, went cross-country skiing, and just relaxed!

March is coming in like a roaring lion, and I am anxiously awaiting the warmer weather that is just around the corner!  I have a case of cabin fever and as a result I am starting to think about our garden for the summer.  In the winter, thumbing through the colorful, ripe fruits and vegetables in the seed catalogs,  I never fail to think that this year, I am going to be an incredible gardner.  I learned my lesson last year though.  I am not planning on having a large garden this summer. I have a lot to learn and I want to have time to learn from and work with other farmers in the area.

Dan and I are taking every opportunity we can to learn from and connect with other farmers.  We have already attended the NOFA-NH Winter ConferenceGranite State Grazier’s Conference, and more.  We have a few more conferences and workshops coming up that I am excited about.

Here are the upcoming workshops I am looking forward to:

I am not sure how many of these we will be able to attend and there are many more that I wish we had time to attend.  If you are interested in finding other workshops in New Hampshire check out NOFA-NH events or UNH Extension events.

If there are any other good workshops out there that we are missing out on, please let us know!

Farewell from the farm!

xoxo, Britta

p.s. – I’m loving the pallets from Valentine’s Day!  Dan and I have been out stacking wood and we’re hoping to move the pallets around with the tractor.DSC_0927
