I like alliteration. Well today was our first day working on the farm as permanent residents – it went pretty well.
We had a delicious Mother’s Day Brunch featuring our own asparagus (SUPER YUM) and afterwards created a to do list which I think will continue to expand every day and which we quickly got to work on. It’s nice to cross things off that list which I think will also happen every day. We created a new home for our strawberries off the ground as rabbits ate and destroyed the patch over winter. Also suffering a blow were some of our favorite flowers which got hit with the frost. Plus this morning we woke up to find that an eagle had killed one of our chickens. It is very humbling to be at the mercy of mother nature.
Despite the sad news I am optimistic (it is my nature) and I feel really good about what we accomplished today – more seeding and planting, getting ready for the chicks that arrive Wednesday, continuing to build our infrastructure, and brainstorming new and creative ways to improve and enjoy the farm.
It is going to be a great summer.
