Happy Valentines Day from the food ranch! Where we spent a romantic day battening down the side walls of the hoop house against gusts of south Texas wind followed by plating onion sets, potatoes and garlic, topped with a few hours of setting up our irrigation system. Woo EE we feel randy after all that farming foreplay! Meaning, we're about to conk out to catch a few zzz's before rise and shine! tomorrow morning.
Seriously now, well, no, nothing serious here--we are having a ball setting up the farm, though keenly aware we are already a couple of weeks behind on the season--while all you northern folks got Son of Polar Vortex, we skipped over winter and are dead on Spring.
But seeing ti come together is a blast and I feel like what I am doing is worth it. Honest work? Don;t know about that, but it is real, something I see each day take shape, a physical thing that we are making.
