As we look at this recently disked patch of land, we feel excited and grateful. We see what can be and what will be as we plan to plant. The quality of the dirt is one of our highest priorities and one of the ways we prepare it is by adding compost or gypsum to loosen the soil and help with drainage.
You think our Big Green Tractor is s…er…simply amazing? We think so too and yes, it goes slow and we can make it go faster.
Next time you see a big, smooth(ish) patch of dirt, try looking at it through a farmer’s eye and you’ll see abundant potential and beauty.
The temperatures soared for us here in the last few weeks. We went into conservation mode and started opening windows in the office early in the morning and closing everything up when we started to feel the heat creeping in. We worked in the office with the lights mostly off (our windows provide beautiful natural light). If you have a naturally lit office space, we suggest you try this sometime ~ once the eyes adjust, it actually provides an effective calming ambience to the office day.
On a brighter, more colorful note ~ Look what the sun did for our zinnias!!
