We have come full circle. Our breath a little slower and a little deepper. Shining smiles of accomplishment we pat each other on the back (after some challenging moments have passed). We did it! A family effort. The potatoes are happily setting masses of roots and shoots searching for the sun above the nurtured soil.
The potato field has expanded by a ½ acre in area and by several hundred pounds in density. The land was cultivated more and the soil supported to produce healthy resilient plants. We are excited for the coming months and anticipate an abundant harvest of beautiful, nutritious, tasty taters with the blessing of our Mamma Gaia and Pappa Sun!
Many thanks and much gratitude for all the support, in all the ways we received it in 2015. The success will carry forward into this season.
May we continue in this beautiful dance to support other Local West Kootenay Food initiatives as we have been supported!
