Well finally the weather is cooperating with us a little bit more. Jeremy and I just got back from the Sasquatch music festival in Washington, and brought the sunshine home. It’s interesting to see how the weather affects us on the farm – considerably lifting our moods, and also adding a different dynamic to the daily chores (aka keeping better tabs on weeds and watering) and how we spend our evenings (planting and enjoying a late dinner on the deck).
We are making progress and the lower field is filling up slowly but surely. It is a lot of work. Probably the most work I’ve ever done in my life. Working and living on the farm has really shown me how much respect farmers, and food, deserve. As hard as we work, it is just as important to take the time to fully enjoy the fruits and vegetables and herbs and flowers of our labour. Now that summer is finally here, I intend to do so.
