Although you'll find me often at La Basse Cour, my official "studio hours" for this season are Fridays 10 to 2 p.m. What do I mean by that, and how are those hours different than others that I spend at the farm?

This season when you visit my space you see that I am now selling under two labels: Jules Wrenne and Kortright Handworks@La Basse Cour. I expect I will be asked more than once to explain the difference between one basket and the other. The answer is engendered in the question I am most often asked at fairs and markets: "Where do you get your yarn?"

May has been a rainy, rainy month here in the Great Western Catskills. Out my window each day - for weeks on end, it seems -- the green of the new growth takes my breath away while and all the cold wetness dampens my spirits, threatening to squash enthusiasm under its pall.

In late February I was “nominated” for the 10 day farming family challenge by a Facebook – and real life farmer-friend. The challenge is to post pictures from a day in the life of farming that had an impact on me, without any explanation, and to nominate someone to take the challenge, for 10 consecutive days.

I first became aware of TAC in 2011, when my husband and I began living in Brooklyn half-time. Out walking one winter's day, I was brought up short by a series of beautiful arched windows in a restored industrial building, my attention caught because they were shiny bright in contrast with their dingy neighbors.

March is well-nigh, when here in the Northeast we begin to count the days until signs of new life become obvious. We generally view Winter as the season of trial and hardship, Spring as the season of hope and renewal; Winter as a time of monochromatic dormancy and Spring as a time of vibrant activity.
