(Belatedly) The End

"Oh yeah, all right. Are you going to be in my dreams Tonight? And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make."

Well, all good things come to a stopping point. In farming this end is usually when it gets too cold for the plants and for the farmer. Yes, some farmers might have hoop houses that can prolong their season, but for Farmer David and Gravity Hill Farm, the conclusion to farm season 2008 came at Thanksgiving time. It was a great season by any measure. Happy consumers of fresh, organic, sustainable produce from a local farm. And at a reasonable cost. What more could healthy eaters want! Farmer David would like to thank all who have supported his efforts at the Lawrenceville and New Hope Farmers' markets. Farmer David would also like to thank the restaurants who supported Gravity Hill Farm by including its produce in some of their meals-
Blue Bottle Cafe, Brother's Moon, One 53, and Elements. Thanks also to all those who visited the farm and lent a helping hand in one capacity or another. Farmer David, David Earling, and Maria Nicolo look forward to another great season in 2009.

Peace, good health, hopefulness, and good eating to all.

The winter squash crop was bountiful and varied. When all was said and done all the tables in the green house were full.

The winter squash were very popular at both the New Hope and the Lawrenceville Farmers' Markets. The variety in sizes, shapes, and colors is an amazing display.

After the hustle and bustle of the summer, the fields seem serene and quiet as winter starts to settle in.

And in the end, all is quiet. Looking forward to seeing you all at markets next season.
