A year and a half ago we vowed to come out of isolation. WOW!!! What a difference it has made. We have new friends. And through both the inspiration and the assistance of those wonderful folks we are advancing by leaps and bounds. We have also been strengthening the ties between ourselves and our neighbors, and in that strengthening we have realized a generosity we had never acknowledged.
This weeks planting is a prime example. This past winter (it is indeed past now) our neighbor Morell
We decided to take her up on the deal and yesterday we planted more potatoes than we've ever planted before, about fifty pounds, plus some potatoes that were going to seed in Morell's basement. It was a wonderful morning full of jokes, and the work shared by so many wasn't like work at all!
