Tomorrow is December can you believe it?! I can’t looking at all the delicious greens we will have at this weekend’s market. Delicate, delicious, delightful Lettuce from our high tunnel? Sweet frost kissed Kale, Brussel sprouts, and the last of this seasons Broccoli? Rainbow Chard or some zippy fresh Herbs to brighten your rainy week? Come visit us at Sheridan School from 9-1 and Dupont Sunday from 8:30-1!
Here at New Morning we give thanks for each other, you, the soil, our backs and knees, and so much more. A love of sharing food and company led many of us to farming in the first place, so this is a special time of year to reflect as this year slows and we begin planning for next year. This week we are planting Garlic, harvesting roots, and preparing for our big Thanksgiving markets this weekend. Apprentices are beginning to leave, and it’s always exciting, and a little sad, to follow them in their future endeavors.
We would like to especially express our extremely profound thanks to a very special lady, Ms Pearl Wetherall. Pearl has been with us for 8 years. She has been our Field Manager for three years, managed the Saturday Sheridan Market, the Sunday Dupont Market, and almost every other aspect of the farm during her illustrious tenure. More importantly, she has managed the hilarity, funny leg dancing, epic your mom jokes (sorry Mary), and general bad assery at NMF for the better part of a decade. This lady is awesome in the original meaning of the word, and she will be incredibly missed. She is taking a great job managing Cropsey Community Farm, an awesome CSA farm in the Hudson Valley. We are so excited for her. She will be working this Sunday at Dupont if you wanted to give her a fist bump of veggie love.

Everything Starts as a Seed
Jim and Moie Crawford started organic farming in 1972, on rented land, with a little experience, and practically no money. Over the course of 40 years, New Morning Farm grew from a small operation, selling vegetables out of the back of a pick-up truck, to a farm of over 95 acres with several thriving markets in Washington, D.C.
