I stumbled upon this picture as I was thinking about capturing the moment I am in right now. This picture embodies what an ideal farm would look like…healthy plants, straight rows, cultivated at the right time with cover crop in the background. The picture is from last month, when the weather was nice and mild, allowing us to cultivate every week. This past week has been just the opposite. Our crops are very bountiful and we struggle to harvest everything we can while staying on top of the weeds and thinking about planting for the fall. This is peak season for a farmer. After a couple months taking care of our tomato plants they are starting to yield nicely. We just harvested all of our garlic before a big rain storm which is extremely important because otherwise it would rot in the field from the soaking conditions. Being a farmer means you are on the weathers schedule, not your own. I could use a day off, however this lifestyle is so fulfilling I would not have it any other way.
