Signs Of Life!

Yes, that is probably a little naive of me to say, being a new farmer and all, but I can't help my excitement. Yes, the farm has definitely changed from when I first saw it. Grassy, weedy, and surrounded by blackberry bushes-no more! Beautifully tilled beds, planted rows, and yes, signs of life! I was very excited when I caught a glimpse of the kale, broccoli, and cauliflower coming up, of which Amy and I planted weeks ago. Those 120 pepper plants I planted (ok, that number is an exaggeration, it just felt like 120!) have doubled in size.

Each time I come to the farm, what a change I see. I look forward to each and everytime I go back. Yes, even the hours of continuous weeding of leeks and onions brings me back. Hard to believe, but what a joy!

Cheers to this weekend!

    I am pretty sure you planted more than 120 pepper plants. my math skills are terrible but my counting isn't so bad.
