   A young man asked if he could help sell CSA membership for us, we worked out a deal and said yes. The deal is working out well, he is a real go getter--if there were other works like him around here I could take rest easier knowing that things and stuff was getting done right and proper. He treats the task at hand as if it was his own--a bit high strung we watch him so he does not burn himself out. We will look for another to help out with CSAs to like this young man, he is a real trooper.

   Leon, Dan, and I have been cutting fire wood these past several days(Leon is another organic farmer whom we work together with syrup) the trees was removed from the ditch that was re-dug. Those trees was pushed into one hug pile filled with limbs, grasses, and other debris that has to be worked out to get to the good wood--it is fun to work on a farm so many different things to do.

   A sad note I will not be trapping rats in the ditches and marsh this year. The rats are few(less than a 5Th then previous years) they are having kidney failure--dying off...chemicals but no one is saying that. Even though I trap I have a great respect for animals and they are part of the farms income, that is lost this year. We do not over trap, the loss of these little creatures is very sad. Lets hope someone is looking into this matter and cause.
