Pick up yourself
When we look at the 20 or so trays of one thing that we have to plant, anything in quantities over 1,000.....knees go weak....mind blurs.....heart palpitates....our eyes lock after we've loaded up the trays and, in silent resignation, we move towards our front field to face the task at hand, knowing we're going to have to call on our friends Mos Def, Flaming Lips, Beach House and several others to help ease the monotony. We've had several big let-downs so far this season that we're trying to work out. Navigating through crop losses, lack of a solid germination, too much rain, and the distraction of building a house is proving to be difficult. challenging. is that why we're farming? Love of a good challenge??
