Hello Supporters & People that enjoy reading young Farmer blurbs,

Second chicken coop got rained out last weekend so waiting to move all the manure still. Started growing new salad mix for my winter CSA and farm stand I've been improving each weekend called Maidens Market

My farm business is changing too. I also want to welcome my first employee starting November. Welcome Justin - a recent wwoofer who decided to come back after his mini vacation from NC. Most impressed he came back! Ha ha ha. 

My mother tells me I'm a horrible boss. I suppose I should put watching Horrible Boss films on my checklist for the winter break I mean winter working season. What can I say I have severe high expectations and I'm a megalomaniac. I'm a poor smuck loaded with bad debt with big dreams. Life can't get any better than working 80 hours a week and surviving it week after week. You gotta keep moving forward. Saying that, I put all my profits to purchasing a smaller greenhouse to grow greens through the winter for a local buyer. Crossing my fingers I really get this right the first time around since after 2 years I'm just starting to figure out how to make my little farming operation to earn enough money not to go too crazy after each long season.

A short sentence. All I think about is getting to go surfing. Hopefully selling more greens will get me to the beach - next summer.

If you are reading this but haven't received your t-shirt - due to the farm lunch please stop by and say hello! You likely live in Powhatan and I'd love to meet you and show you what I'm doing as of now - always morphing - improvements of course.

Again, thanks to all my wwoofers ( farm work exchange travelers), farm backers, buyers, CSA customers, and my newest farm wwoofer - she's from France that wants to work on her English - this should be interesting. 

Stop by to buy a pumpkin if out in Powhatan on the weekends. I'm going to have some awesome ones. Just look for the "Awesome Farmer ahead" signs.

Oh, and before I forget check out my blurb in the Virginia Farm Bureau Magazine! See pages 13-15 here http://issuu.com/virginiafarmbureau/docs/fbn0915
