With almost two years under my belt in the sustainability project, known as Rising Kale Farms, I have discovered that it’s a lot more than just dirt and water. It’s about timing…record keeping…patience…research…hard work, and money…lots of money. I have been incredibly fortunate to have the right people on my side. I have also learned what it is like to deal with absolute idiots who were never lucky enough to have the common sense most people have. I also now understand the meaning of good neighbors and the real value of having a strong pair of extra hands. I have become mindful that although I wear I watch, I don’t look at it much. And, I have discovered what the true meaning of sweat is, and I revel in the consciousness of accomplishment that comes with it. Everyday, after putting in a full day at work, I head to the farm to do my chores and gather the eggs. Along the way, I discover yet another project that needs my attention and my brain starts spinning. As we move into the cooler weather, the Fall/Winter garden will be planted for market, the pond will be stocked with fish and the baby ducklings will find their new home in the barn. I hope that you’ll follow along on my journey.
