You might have seen this coming, the somewhat regular farm report.
It's been a while since I've written about the farm, a place very dear to our hearts. Last month's farm day was overshadowed by the busy-ness that was February.
We didn't even actually "visit" the farm last month. Instead we drove by and picked up our veggies (in the dark) on our way home from a shopping trip. Unfortunately, farm pick-up day coincided with our quarterly trip to the Patagonia outlet, where we make a four times a year journey (1/2 hour drive) to buy most of our clothing for wicked good prices.
But March is a new month with a much more relaxed schedule. Phew. Yesterday's farm visit was just as it should be. A laid back, mud splattered and rooster crowing affair. With a healthy dose of "oohing and ahhing" at the new lambs.
Visiting the animals, walking in mud (mud season has arrived early here in Maine) and talking with our farmer was just what the kids and I needed. I'm so thankful for the farm.
