The Day in Farming

We had planned today as a day to catch up on errands and paperwork, but with rain forecast for tomorrow, we changed plans and decided to do our farm work instead. The day started with opening the bee hives to make sure that we had a strong queen in each hive. Thankfully, the hives are busy and full and healthy. Then we weeded all the gardens, thinned carrots, fertilized, tied up the tomatoes, picked blueberries and wild raspberries, then finally picked greens for our dinner. In the end, we were covered with dirt and sweat, with bowls of beautiful produce and neat gardens. What a wonderful day!
