As we reach mid-semester in our Advanced Crop Production class it is nice to break from bed building to take in the beauty surrounding us to reflect. Especially, on a windy duty filled day like the last. The clouds move swiftly across the sky covering the sun momentarily before giving it chance to shine upon us. The newly planted Brassica transplants sway back and forth, joyful to be in a place where they will grow big and strong with plenty of nutrients by their feet to enjoy. The chickens spend the gusty day inside their new abode painted in a color Ol’ Rick† would have approved. The newly built wall serves its purpose as a place of rest and keeping the mushroom spores in place. Our farm is constantly changing and it is certainly something to write home about. Or at least in our journals.
