To be a farmer in the spring is to be presented with an endless list of projects and the opportunity to witness countless moments of beauty.
Passing thundershowers duel with gusty breezes and warm sun rays. The seedlings respond to all of these cues and grow.
Sun rays warm the fields in the magic light of sundown and paint the Farm in the springtime. The palate is full of shades that highlight the new life growing there: yellow-greens, soft yellows and light blues – tentative and seemingly shy. I watch each day as they deepen and develop a necessary toughness to weather life in the field.
We plan, we build, we plant and before we know it the sun is going down on another day that has been filled with important and endless decisions that will help us to create a growing, living world at The Farm.
