On Mud Pies, Community Gardens, and Why I Can't be Friends with Wasps.

We have been busier than ever out here. Farming takes up the bulk of our time, but occasionally we do something fun. Thought I'd share a few pictures with you from October.

Natalina made the prettiest mud pie at the Lincoln Elementary Harvest Fair (just visiting).

Our local Grange planted a community garden, and a bunch of us turned out to harvest potatoes and Winter squash one sunny morning. Natalina participated by clinging to me while I tried to fork up potatoes.

I went out on a field walk one lovely afternoon, only to find myself the victim of a (rather vicious) wasp. I am no foe to wildlife, but will someone please tell me why wasps are good?

The hand that was spared, for reference.

I promise to be more diligent in writing!
