Over the course of a single day, three people asked me for my blog address. Hmmm. Note to self: start a blog. I had been thinking about it for some time, but having a deep-seated fear of commitment I was reluctant to start something I might not stick with. Between writing, cooking and basking in the glow of a place I call Pine Cone Meadow Farm, not to mention keeping my day job happy, I didn’t want to add one more thing.
But the time has come. This past year I bought the little weekend farm, enlisted friends and family to paint most of the rooms, recruited my neighbor to put his carpentry skills to good use on bathrooms and shed, and carved out time to make friends with chefs and growers, who helped make Pine Cone Meadow a desirable food stopover, even if I made people work for their supper.
I feel like I’m starting this blog mid-adventure, but I know there will always be lots to eat and drink (and plant and harvest). So I’ll talk about my infatuation with food and farmers, and maybe keep my head straight about my ever-growing to-do list.
