My first day at the farm
Ah strawberries, good juicy sweet, summer in your mouth. Not your average store bought but a fresh one from a local farm. There is nothing like it. This is one of the many things that will be in my share from the CSA farm I am working at this summer. I started to do my work share yesterday. Hard work, good work, achey work, God's work. I loved every minute of it. Working the land, to feed my family. That is all I needed to keep me going. Yesterday I planted seedlings of broccoli, brussel sprout, and cabbage. Then I weeded for two hours! But it just flew by because I was weeding, not spraying toxic chemicals but weeding the parsnips. We had to make sure they didn't get choked off by the weeds so we could have a beautiful long white carrot like root vegetable that I love. That is why it wasn't so hard for me to do. Working for a share of food is a labor of love, love for your family, for the land, for myself. Yes I am sore today but a good sore. Beats any workout!
