Daze Off

Yesterday was my birthday.  Now I’m 24.  It’s gonna be a good year - I already got my birthday wish…I’m farming.

I didn’t go the farm at all yesterday - Sunday.  I woke up, went to the river with Andrea, Ryan and other friends, celebrated the day by swimming in the refreshing water and being thankful that the snowpack was bountiful enough to give us this cooling gift.  It was the first time since the beginning of February that I didn’t do something at the farm.  All the watering was taken care of on Saturday, after the market, so that gave me such liberty.

If I were to advise another farmer, especially a beginning one (like me) who hasn’t taken a whole day off in way too long, don’t start now - start a long time ago, like back in February when you could’ve done it way easier you silly goose.  As far as the day off,  I loved it way too much.  In fact I could go for a few more of those.  I see why retirement is so appealing.  Fortunately I have things like the CSA to keep me on track.  It was back to the farm today to harvest for our members.  Today we gave everyone a couple of tomatoes and some cherry tomatoes, along with other goodies, as the biggest surprise of the week.

I’ll get another day off this upcoming Sunday.

adios,

Andrew
