Winter 2021 Short Report

I love the Christmas season. I love cold snow, hot drinks, the smell of pine needles, and apple cider. I love curling up in a blanket by the fireplace and reading. I love finding presents I think people will enjoy and wrapping them (while trying to make sure the paper lines up just right).

My grandfather loved to see things grow. As a farmer and a gardener he dedicated his life to creating the best environment for plants to flourish. It was his occupation on the farm, and his hobby and passion in the garden. The results were obvious. His huge garden was full of row after row of healthy produce. I liked the carrots most and would often wash one or two off in the rain barrel for a snack. My wife would be most excited for the tomatoes. Deep red, firm, juicy, they were nothing like what you got in a store.
