Spring may be the finest farm season - fluffy baby chicks, leaping lambs, pettable piglets...Everyone (including the farmers) so fresh and perky still. I heard a farmer recently describe the approach of the summer season as trying to outrun the weight of the farm - soon it will be sitting on top of you. In the spring, everything feels manageable, you are still in front of it, nothing on top of you although the list of chores grows as surely as the peas poke through amended soil, tomatoes find larger pots, and everyday brings new wonders.
The intention of the blog is to keep you connected with the farm - if you have questions, ask 'em. Something you've always wondered, let us know!
