We farmers are busier than one-armed paper hangers this time of year. And so, I suppose, are many of you. I hope this rapidly ending spring finds you well and in good spirits. I have to agree with Mary Remington, one of our new employees, who yesterday noted, “I am usually a pretty happy person, but these days I am happier than I can imagine.” Ed Go, another new employee says, “I am having more fun than any human being should be allowed.” One wonders what all of the components are that go into this ebullience regarding slogging through the rain, the heat, the sometimes mosquitoes, slipping in cow manure when one takes a misstep, staying one step ahead of the local rats, the hours of bending over, and working of a hoe with one’s head turned to the side, the machinery repairs, the hand-weeding . . . Well, I am not sure, but I think it has to do with the healthy air, the healthy soil, the happy animals (except for the rats), the camaraderie all day long, and the great food that we consume in large quantities here. Come on over and join us.
