News from the farm

December 28th

Our holidays were good.

What about all that rain! We measured 9" over Christmas. Town creek is on our north border and it had come out of its banks and flooded the field on the other side and the trees on our side of the creek are now about 30' into the creek. Very few times does it get so high. We are on Sand Mountain and everything is down hill from here so I know the flood plains around Huntsville and other towns that border the Tennessee River will have a lot of water if we have this much. We are getting more rain right now. Hope we don't get bad weather they are predicting.

So we have been working on the cabin and we are doing the bathroom now. We have got it plumbed, the subfloor down, the dry wall, and the tub raised. We still have to get the outside plumbing done and get the durarock and tile to finish it. We would like to do a mosaic but we may not want to spend the time. Spring is approaching, and inside activities end.

So far the field crops are doing ok but with so much rain and if it gets below freezing they may rot totally. Thankfully the high tunnels are starting to produce, some lettuces and spinach. So far the winter has been kind to our field crops, but the January rains and cold is usually to much for them.

We thank all the people who have helped and supported us thru Russell's heart attack and getting field work done and building our second story on and getting it roofed, a big job done. Bless you all and hope you and your families are healthy and happy. Dove & Russell
