First frost at Sol Feliz Farm

IMG_7647.JPGToday is Dia de San Geronimo, an important feast day in the Taos area.  There will be dances and celebration at the neighboring Taos Pueblo.  We awoke this morning to a layer of ice on the windows of the cars signifying a frost.  We are not sure how intense the frost was, but likely the season is officially over.  We will now have to bring all the dry crops in such as maize and beans, allow them to dry completely, and then process them for food and seed.  It was a good season and the end comes with the anticipation of winter and a sigh of relief that our hard work paid off and that we were mostly successful in the growing season.
