And So It Begins

"Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!"

-Sitting Bull

So I have a blog now. I'm not entirely sure what purpose I want this to serve. I am not a writer, lacking both the skill and desire to put my thoughts into written word. What I am, however, is excited about the journey I have been on for the past year. I hope to share more about that in future posts. For the most part, I just want to be able to share pictures and stories of the farm that I'm a part of. Right now we have over 300 seeds started indoors and have begun spreading manure over the majority of the garden. If the weather holds, plowing will happen Monday afternoon. Then the real fun begins.

Well, this is more than I had intended to write for an introduction already. I hope I have the persistence to keep this up. There are a lot of reasons that I am enjoying an agrarian lifestyle, but I will end with a couple of quotes that pretty well sum it up for me.

"The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul." -Alfred Austin

"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." -Albert Einstein
