I Asked Terry—Sunday, June 30, 2019

If he missed farming

He said no.

That he still had lots to do out on the outer reaches, the edges of the farm


The pastures are easier to keep and the management of the pastures is much less time consuming, (those little round dots were the bugs flying in the air as we drove through the pasture–I was hoping to get them on camera, but they only showed up as dots.)

But here is a little thing I notice

Ever so often, in a random sort of way

He talks about what he wants to plant next year…

Which fields will hold corn, what field will be a new alfalfa field

So I wonder…is there longing or planning going on.

Either way works for me.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. I suspect a little of both feelings might be involved, but the most important thing is that he is content with the pace of life on your farm — and that you, too, are content!


  2. It sounds like he just needed an extended break to see how much he missed it. Sometimes, the spirit says yes, but the body says maybe not so fast. 😉 It’s so beautiful there from your photos.


  3. You can’t not want to grow something. Anytime spent on a farm of any size, you can’t lose that feeling. I always want to plant something and it is heartbreaking when something dies.
