osage orange
A friend of ours, John Moore, brought a pick-up truck load of freshly cut osage orange yesterday. This will certainly keep me busy through the winter ahead.

Season end greetings

Well, tomorrow is the last event where we will be demonstrating this year. We will be a part of the Farmer’s Christmas at the Delaware Agricultural Museum in Dover, Delaware. The event runs from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Sort of a strange time but this will allow everyone to rake leaves and do Christmas chores and still have a nice relaxing event to go to.

If not, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
