Shelly:  So sorry to hear about the accident and the pain that makes farming not possible.  It is heart breaking to invest as much as you  have and watch it just sit there-- and I'm glad you can see what a difference you've made in Wyoming.

Hoping the pain gets controlled and you can farm again next season.

  It is with great sadness that I write to withdraw my name from this  
  list for a time. Through the last five years this group has been a  
  source of unequaled support and a wealth of information. Due to a car  
  accident last July, I will be unable to farm this year. I sustained  
  damage to two cervical vertebrae in my neck and so far they have not  
  found anything that works to improve the pain. For at least this  
  year, the greenhouse and high tunnel will sit empty and the fields  
  will be planted to cover crops. It is heartbreaking to watch  
  something that I have worked so hard for not grow and thrive this  
  season. There have been many successes over the last few years and  
  the fruits of that labor will continue to produce. The concept of CSA  
  is no longer foreign in Wyoming, The Wyoming Fresh Market, Cheyenne's  
  growers only farmers market is entering its 3rd season and expecting  
  its best year ever, and Wyoming finally has a Farmers Marketing  
  Association and I was proud to serve as the founding president of  
  that board. The associations and friendships that I have made through  
  this list will never die. For I time I will devote my energy to  
  school and my children and hope that it will not be too long before I  
  am starting seeds, planting, and harvesting again soon. A thousand  
  thanks to all of you and many blessings in your worthy endeavors.
