The End of the Season

By Phyllis Odessey

It’s getting cold outside.  We are not deterred.  Sitting inside makes the mind wander and we are thinking about 2013.  Yesterday, we picked up a new greenhouse for the farm.  Today, we began putting the garden to bed.  There are still a few vegetables to harvest and here’s a look.
Due to Hurricane Sandy, RICE FESTIVAL, the threshing and winnowing of the rice had to be postponed.  The rice is hanging to dry in our tool shed and we are looking for a date when students come to the island;  thresh the rice; and cook some food that has rice as its centerpiece.
