Day to Day :: September 1, 2009

It took all of us to flush the stray pig out of the cornfield. Giggles, and shouts of “I found him! Over here!” drifted out from the thick dark green mass of rustling leaves.

Would I miss this, if we stop farming? I know I’d miss telling the story.

    Yours is the first blog I followed and is still my absolute favorite. I should miss the wonderful glimpses of farm life if you stop farming. Your stories and pictures of the farm and your family are an American treasure. I only wish I had been equipped with the talent and good sense to record my own farm life so lovingly when I was so fortunate as to live there for few years. I think I always had the fear that it wouldn't last and, truly, it was difficult in so many ways but almost every day brought something a bit magical into my life.I wish you the very best and feel you truly deserve just that. Thank you for sharing so much with us.

    That's a tough decision. Especially when you weigh in the things that are benefits but don't add anything to the bottom line. If we all looked at farming from a purely business sense we'd all be running for the door. Of course I don't actually know what it is that is prompting your dilemma. I know for us it is usually a feeling of working for nothing. But anyway, good luck with it, we've been there too, and probably will be again.
