Tomorrow afternoon we leave for Torino! We are excited and very much looking forward to our much needed break from the 2008 season. We did our books today, and collated our top 10 crops, located in the sidebar for your amusement. We finished the farm clean-up last week, and woke up to some hard frosts the past few days. We are grateful to have the opportunity to represent the Intervale and the United States at this conference of world food communities. I am bringing our laptop, indeed, and intend to blog along the way – so stay tuned and check in often! We are lacking our trusty electronics adapter, so hopefully we can borrow one when we arrive! Spencer, Thomas and I want to thank all of our customers and accounts who have supported us this season, and want to pay particular thanks to the folks that donated $$ to our cause! Stone Soup, City Market, Hen of the Wood, Great Harvest, Sweet Clover Market and Dish Catering. THANKS A MILLION!! We promise to absorb mightily and share willingly while in Italy and upon our return!
