Life on the farm is about as busy as it can get these days. The early spring crops are being harvested and the rows are being cleared to make room for new seeds. The summer crops are growing like crazy. Work here is a flurry of weeding, composting, planting, harvesting, canning, and more weeding! On top of that, it’s incredibly hot and humid. It’s so rewarding to see your hard work pay off in the form of delicious produce, but at the same time, I get burned out pretty quickly and constantly feel overwhelmed. We are taking a short family vacation next week and joining our family in Colorado. We are very fortunate to have Nicole, my mvp of the csa, to farm-sit for us. The last time we went, Comet was a baby so he has no memory of how beautiful it is there. Since his lifelong dream is to be a nature scientist, he’s excited about the prospect of seeing new and exciting creatures and plants. I’m excited to see it all through his eyes, but the part that excites me most? Cooler temperatures and NO MOSQUITOS!
We hope to return energized and ready to tackle the second half of the growing season!
