Gratitude

Some days, weeks, months, are so positive, that all I do is smile.

We (Kristen, Alexandra, Paul and I [and Lauren]) set up our third Roadside Farm Stand this morning and each week we see more faces and move more product. Everyone seems happy and grateful, impressed and willing to share stories from their gardens and kitchens. We are thriving. Thank you, one and all.

We have finished moving and the household and office are functional, if still a little clumsy. After the market, I look out my window, ready to put my feet up and what do I see?

Paul cultivating on the “wee tractor”. See how our backyard flowers, my favorite tithonia, have grown since we got here 3 months ago…

Naturally, I had to run out into the wind and take a shot while he ran through those carrots. I’ll have to ask him about those “spiders” sticking up around the tractor seat. Must be for adjusting the cultivator, depending on field conditions. They look cool.

Some days, I can’t believe how lucky I feel. Please excuse my long absence. Getting back on track now.
