Why blog?

So people know what we are doing and why! Not everything in farming goes well.

Deers get into the feild and eat the leafs off all your beets. You get a heat wave in October making your lettuce bolt and turn bitter. Things happen in your non farm life. Bugs decide to multiply for no reason. Plants decide to stop growing. You get a frost or no rain.

But things also go great. And little pleasures happen every day. You put your own beans in a stew and they turn so green it is almost fake. You grow something you never could before. You see an animal or a bug that brings you joy. You know that you are growing something for your future and your family. Something good, something healthy, something wonderful.

I hope to share with those who want to read about them or are considering their own similar adventure, both the joy and the frustration that comes with farming. At least on our little 30 acre piece of the world.
