A view from the hill
Watching a storm come, looking down on the veggies
Typing 'week five' makes me wonder where the time has gone! Even with these long summer days, there is never enough daylight to get done what we'd like to. Don't get me wrong, things are growing just swell on the farm, things are looking better that I would have imagined. But I wish we had just a few more hours before the sun set.
The picture above is one we took after moving the pigs one evening. I don't frequently walk up this hill for this view, even though it is one of my favorite views of the farm. This year my neighbors, dairy farmers Pam and Dean, and growing perennial grasses on it, with oats as a nurse crop. Not growing up on a farm myself (if you would have asked me if I'd like to work on a farm as a kid, I'd ask you if you were out of your mind!), it's fun to interact with the older generation farmers whose families have been farming for generations. I'm thankful to have such great neighbors.
In this newsletter, I wanted to include a few more pictures with a bit less text, let me know how you like the format!
