This is the season when the farm becomes wild and unruly, despite our laughable attempts to keep control. It’s impossible to keep up with nature this time of year. She is determined to turn our gardens into jungles.
But along with the relentless weeds and grass, we’re blessed with an avalanche of food.
It’s a great time of year, weeds and all.
I’m very grateful for the community we have here. I appreciate all the excellent comments lately and I’m sorry I’ve been delinquent in responding to them. Thoughtful comments deserve thoughtful replies. So I’ve been waiting till I have a little more time. Soon.
We’re leaving Thursday for our annual long weekend at the Wild Goose Festival. Like every other year, I feel a little uneasy about being away from the farm for four days. And like every other year, I’m sure the farm will manage just fine without me.
For you fellow Wild Goosers who may be interested, I’ll be speaking on Creation Care and Responsible Meat Consumption on Sunday morning at 9:30. Looking forward to reconnecting with everyone!
