It’s a busy week here on the farm.
There’s hay to make between rain showers.
There’s our other job to do. You know the one we work so that we can farm.
It’s June. It’s not vacation time. It’s not refreshing in the sense most desire.
In fact, it’s quite depleting…except for the part about farming being in the fibers of your hopes and expectations.
July, August and half of September will bring their heavy heat…
…and I may post more Erin Ehnle photos to help me keep up during my first summer as a farm blogger…
…or maybe I’ll just post a frazzled donkey photo and let you do the inferring…:)
…either way we’re thankful for this productive season – for the potential we foster and guide all year long.
And we hope you trace what you see on your plate back to a diligent farmer who, like with all beloved careers and deeply felt callings, bets it all on potential
– regardless of all the uncontrollable variables, the waves of public opinions, the unexpected scourges, the “one more thing” days of broken equipment, and the social calendar that has weddings/graduations/planting pulling at time…
…but not commitment…
Because we grow relationships and food – we expect both to fit into our days and we can be real creative about making it happen – because the former is where the greatest potential is and the latter makes it all possible.
Thank you FARMily for all your hard work.
Thank you FarmFriends for going FarrrTHUR with agriculture this week.
Mooove over, we’d like to sit down, put feet up and visit a while. 🙂
