Yesterday I drove up to Bellows Falls, VT to pick up the pork from our last group of pigs. Jim couldn't go, because he was going to be Santa at their church fair. He, of course, kept quiet about it -- doesn't fit with his tough 'n taciturn farmer image, but he sure has the beard to make a great Santa. He is too kind to say "no", so he probably got roped in, and hoped that at least he would keep it quiet. Unfortunately, his wife Nancy ratted him out. I'm so happy!
Yesterday a busy day -- up to Vermont, then down to my place to unpack our CSA and farm store pork into the freezers, and finally down to Northampton to deliver a bulk pork order to a very nice young man.
I get to goof off over the next few days, go to the gym, drink tea, and putter around the house. (When you are a Virgo, puttering makes the heart sing!) It will be a wonderful Holiday season for us here, and we all wish you even better.
