Editor's Note: I must confess I had no idea that once football was always in season. And I am seriously considering tapping the two maple trees in our front yard to see what happens. We joked about it last year but this year I'm inspired by the journals. Perhaps next March so I'll be more prepared but I worry about a whole lot of effort for little reward. I'm a rather lazy farmer though we did sow many seeds this past weekend. To be clear, when I call myself a farmer I mean we really just have small veggie patch but it is awesome.
