Working on a farm never is the same from day to day. It never ceases to amaze me how people can think that farming is easy. However, I must admit that until last year, I thought farmers had it made; that they live a life of ease and contentment. Once the crops are planted., I figured most farmers took off for Florida or Arizona. Boy, was I wrong. Everyday on the farm is a challenge! Once you think you have it all figured out, the weather will change or something will happen to make things difficult. I am not complaining, I am just saying that farm life is not a walk in the park. Here at Bountiful Blessings Farm, we are still diligently working daily, to get our crops in and ready for the upcoming market season. Today I spent most of the day transplanting. I drove to a neighboring town to look at a potato digger. I was able to get it, however, I will have to go back and pick it up with a trailer. It is very old and needs a lot of work, but I think with some elbow grease we can make it work for digging our potatoes. It was a pleasure to find it and even more a pleasure to know that we will not have to dig all those potatoes by hand like last year. I am excited! Kim just let me know that supper is ready, so I will say goodbye for now. I hope you are enjoying a great week!
