The Aspen Turn Gold

The Aspen Turn Gold

As the aspen turn gold and the robins re-gather and the first flights of southbound geese murmur overhead during the night, another farming season, too, draws to close.  We’ve completed harvest, applied our straw digesters and sowed winter peas as our winter cover crop.  Fall tillage is what is left for us to do.  This… Continued
