|Angela Nickle and I after starting the Three Sisters patch.|
I learned there's a lot to know to become a farmer, and it's SO much work. It's work that feels great though. I think food tastes better when you're connected to where it comes from. I know I'm going to order one of Angela's turkeys for our Thanksgiving dinner this year - and the fact that it will be fairly fresh, and raised happily, will make it taste all the juicier!
I think other people can explain more eloquently than I those food-health-spirituality-happiness connections, so I'm just going to leave things here, and just post pictures from the farm! I've got another post about making yarn, which is another thing Angela taught me at the farm (seriously, it was a BUSY week).
