A couple of days ago I pulled myself away from the computer to start taking care of the strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries that we planted last year. I spent the first 45 minutes walking from one building to another looking for the tools that I need.

Then I brought the lawnmower down to the patch and realized that I am too weak to get it started. Once Tim came to my rescue I was able to get it going all by myself.

Then I broke the pull cord.

Paper work piled to the celing in the office, bills to pay, no money. Exec meeting tomorrow with Chicken Board, Wednesday invited to Standing Committee on Agriculture. Topic young farmers and the future of farming. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Go flyers!

Got to Be the Biggest

I've been so excited abou the concert at the Grand Revival, I haven't given a whole lot of thought to opening up the rest of the property for people who would like to check out the farm operation.

Well, tonight I *finally* watched Tim load the bale burner. After all the hype, the newness, the chaos, the learning... that thing is friggin cool. We are set for life with a burner that size, using a crop by-product to heat our buildings. As long as we don't lose the farm, that is :)

All the agric...
