You know you’ve made a commitment when…

you’ve got beautiful healthy hens and full rows of spinach coming up in the field. I have approached this season, relaxed and open to what it can become. Another season is well underway and I am ready for the sunshine ahead.

the shoulder season

Planting peas is what we do with the shoulder season. 2014′s first outdoor sewing. A nice March storm started winding up this morning, light rain, medium rain, heavy rain, then small flakes turning into large flakes of snow. It was a small window, get the seed planted and take advantage of water from the sky. Done.

on this garlic moon

We finally got to planting again today, what a relief. I cannot be happier to be back at work, digging and hoeing, raking and planting. It snowed last night, only an inch or so, which gave me  a late start for the task at hand. Plant the garlic and move on. Once I dug in the earthworms told me let’s do this. To begin the next season is so joyous.  A month ago I would have told you I was flooded and oh so not there, but today I am telling you that we are indeed there and moving forward is the only option. 2014 begins today and I renamed tonights moon the garlic moon. Tonights moon is clear, and cold and I am listening.
