I wish you the best.  I have always enjoyed your words of wisdom and any
thing else you have contributed to this list.  You will be missed.  I hope
you find something that works for you.

It was a pleasure

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.
