Days where lettuce is abundant.
and there are herbs galour.
Garlic is ready to be harvested.
Green beans and peppers are prolific.
The days when the garden is green, the temperatures are warm and working outdoors is enjoyable.
In my attempts to avoid complaining about the temperatures that have consistently stayed blow average since the begining of December. And not complaining about the winter blues that have set in and make fighting the weather even harder. I am not complaining because I know this is how farm life goes. There are ups and downs. There is always work to be done and it doesn't slow down because it is cold. So I keep at it and remember this too shall pass and not too long from now there will be greener days and dirty fingernails and more basil, tomatoes and swiss chard than I will know what to do with. This life is a good one!
