March 2020, Week 4

March 2020, Week 4

The greens are flourishing in the hoop houses. In the field that you drive past when you enter, a mixture of cover crops has sprouted. They'll grow for a while before we till them under to fertilize the fields and then plant the summer's crops. All of it feels exciting, the way every new year feels exciting: rich with potential.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The farm is about so much more than producing crops. You know that, and I know that. We talk about it all the time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What we grow, though, fuels everything else we talk about. What we observe in nature is the basis of the way we think and talk about the land. It guides how we relate to one another, and how we experience space. What we experience arises naturally from being in this environment, surrounded by the living things that populate it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The discoveries are there. They're just waiting for you to open your eyes and let them in. ⠀
