I honestly have a very simple life.
It is made up of very uncomplicated things

Nature and the process of living within nature and (I know some will be surprised by this) working with nature.
For you honestly can not farm if you set out to ‘do it your way’ instead of the way nature wants it.
So, just for information only, here is another sign of the turning of summer into autumn…the corn birds.
They come in huge flocks eating the pollen and bugs from off the tassels of the corn. This doesn’t hurt the corn, the ears are made and are now ripening.

The Crows and the Ravens are starting to return. We hear them calling in the trees and see them as they fly, on great black wings, over the farmyard and crops.
The days are growing shorter; the sun setting by 8:00 p.m.
Still, the earth is warm, it hasn’t grown weary of summer (yet). The days are bright, with the nights cooling down to nice sleeping temperature.
There is still time.
To enjoy the gift of summer!
From my heart to your world,
