Somehow it got to be March of 2020 already! How time flies.
Today is a cold and overcast day after a beautiful warm sunny day. It's telling how weather affects our moods.
In March orders are placed, in April strawberries can be planted, in May weeding rules our time, in June harvest comes and July is time for renovation. Then it's back to weeding during August and September. Today though, I'm looking forward to a farm visit to learn a bit more about how others tackle challenges, what equipment they use and how to best plan for the unknowns of weather and pests and a changing market.
Though we are often creatures of habit, farming is certainly an occupation where there are enough variables that no two years are the same, no amount of planning can insure things with go as planned and there is always more to do than time in the day.
Somedays knowing this is exhausting, other days it's exhilarating but one thing is sure: no matter what, by the end of a good day, my body is good and tuckered out.
I hope whatever occupation you've found for yourself it's one that you can feel good and tuckered out by at the end of the day too.
