The Power of One
Tuesday, June 12, 2012 at 03:03PM

It has been a while since I posted due to work, but I will take advantage of a very wet day out here to sit and write more about the farm adventures.

Almost 1/2 acre is now planted with beans, peas, potaotes, greens, lettuce, herbs, flowers, cabbage, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, beets, parsnips, and green onions.  The rest of the space will be filled in shortly, with the back field being planted with squash later this week.

As I am a very social person an ideal job for me would be working with people.  But now it is just me (mostly) hanging out in the field with my quiet, but peppy vegetables for hours on end.  Not that the days drag, as there is so much to do.  But it has been quite a shift for me.  I absolutely love the late afternoons and evenings in the field and feel sometimes during these times that I understand what it means to be at peace.

Other times I am frustrated by how slowly things are getting done, as it is for most of the time just me.  I am getting stronger, but there are some jobs I just can't physically do... some jobs that exhausted my little body can't handle.   But I love it.
