The farm is quiet now. All the Christmas tree customers have come and gone. The cleaning up is well under way. It’s a little sad, but there’s also the satisfaction of having a good season and there’s the optimism that comes with knowing spring isn’t far away.

It’s also nice knowing there’s more time in the next few weeks to get caught up on some projects we’ve been postponing. It’s off to Fayetteville this afternoon to pick up parts and run errands.

Our Christmas was wonderful, and we hope yours was too. Lots of good food and fellowship, and some thoughtful gifts exchanged too.

Here’s hoping the new year will bring health, happiness and better economic times for everyone.
