I hope this email finds you well.
I’m on train again heading home to the farm so wanted to share with you what has been happening on the farm of late.
The heavy rains have gone however there is still rain about. Whilst the countryside looks like a beautiful green carpet, the soil can’t take anymore so with our dams and tanks full to overflowing I think we have enough for now.
The weather is getting relatively warmer (we’re still having frosts some mornings) and the days longer. Not that long ago it was still dark when I left for work in the morning however it’s now light. With the sun has come amazing grass and weed growth as well as flies. It’s was a weekend of weeding and mowing around the house: you can almost watch the grass grow so before too long it will be back to looking overgrown again.
We made the decision this year to plant some asparagus: an amazing perennial plant that once planted and given 2-3 years to mature will continue to bear asparagus for 15 – 20 years. The individual seeds I planted are now young seedlings and will soon be transplanted into the veggie patch which is to be their home going forward. My farmer has been busy making compost over the winter so we have a great pile to incorporate into the asparagus beds.
I am in awe of nature and how a little seed can grow and bear produce for so long. It will be a few years before we have our first crop so we have to trust in nature and just let the seeds do their thing: grow.
Wherever we are we all have things to do in our day with sometimes there being more task than day! I know myself a never ending ‘to do’ list can be quite overwhelming so with that in mind I hope you enjoy my thoughts on how you can manage a busy day.
