Thoughts on end of year farming in Sandy UT
Does the end of the year harden door responses or get people in the mood for more social interaction?
We have had the recent wonder of Halloween and are not yet expecting Carolers ~ but who can really tell since the social calendars are on countdown, shops are rushing up decorations, sales are on.
Leaves are down, City clean up is over, perhaps time to retreat indoors with an unattended front door.
I still have traction (snow has stayed away, so far). Maybe time to squeeze in another farming run in Historic Sandy UT I live in Historic Sandy and have paid attention to regular farming activity right here. "Who do you know...?" etc. Repeated visits over the expended part of the year, have reduced guarded skepticism, allowed courtesies to be passed, and nourished conversations. All contact is good contact, even if only to carry personal Seasons Greetings.
In the last weeks we have had added doorknocking from people trying to sell every imaginable service, perhaps a sign of the times. Roofing, heating, winterizing, pre winter garden preparation, credit repair, car servicing etc. Residents may be getting weary of door activity. My door chime of "The Yellow Rose of Texas" has received a thorough workout, so I am sensitive to increased activity. But...
Here I come. Ready or Not
