(Note: It’s been a while since we received last farm update but we’re glad to find this in our mailbox today!)

The farm is much quieter now with the Egyptians home in 80-degree weather. The crew is a lot smaller and by next week there will only be three or four people helping out over the winter.

We’re still harvesting things like greens and Brussels sprouts mainly from the fields in NJ, but also some here in upstate NY. And we’re already getting ready for next year, filling visa forms, planning crops and, of course, doing taxes before we leave.

Haifa and I will be going to visit relatives in Jordan but will also go to Turkey and Bulgaria to recruit new employees, as we cannot do so from Egypt under the new regulations.
