Really, in modern life most of us do not think about the weather often. Maybe if you are a construction worker or have a kid's soccer game or a weekend festival, but most of us never think about it. Well, I, and all farmers, do.
This morning I woke up to lightning and heavy rain. When I got in my car they started talking about heavy wind. I LOVE thunderstorms, but hate wind. Honestly, it scares me, and a little voice deep inside whispers scary things when heavy wind is around. When I was a little girl we lived in Hawaii and a tree fell down in a storm very close to me (in my memory just feet from me,) that fear has been with me my entire life.
But in any case, I think this morning's weather was punishment for me talking about summer yesterday! Yes, I know it is officially fall. I know there is a possibility of frost, already, on the long term forecast (Oct 10th).
I am thinking a lot about weather, this season has gone SO fast. Already I have people contacting us about next season, and I am still hopeing taht my garden will grow for anouther 3-4 weeks...
So is this a post about weather, farming, or are they basically the same?
