The water droplets feel so freezing cold on an early harvest morning. But everything is slowing down, our non harvest days are much more relaxed. On harvest days it's been hard to pull what we need out of the garden because it was so rainy and cold for a long time. Everything was looking slimy and sad, but the garden has been perking up since it has stopped raining lately.

We're seeding wheat between rows of cash crops. This prevents erosion and stops weeds from germinating. Here are the rows seeded, then germinated.

Actually it was nothing like LOST, thank goodness because that would have been horrible and bizarre.

I explained to Adam and Rosie and Nikiah today, the way I feel mostly isn't "wow this is so exciting!" It's more that I feel that what I am doing is exactly right, that it is the best thing I could be doing right now. I feel a calm sense of purpose and contentedness more than nerves or excitement, because I feel more that I am finally doing what I wished I had been doing for the last fifteen years.
That said, I do get excited when I make a meal involving ingredients from the farm, or when there's a new baby cow. My heart swells when I see the sun rise through the misty trees. I feel satisfied at the end of a long day when my muscles are tired and I have the feeling that I really deserve to rest and to eat, that I really need it.
