Brave New World
Emerging February crops
We haven’t allowed an alarm clock since the crew left us in November. Well, except for Wednesdays. We are trying to fool ourselves into thinking that we are getting our usual end of the season break, despite entering into the brave new world of winter farming. It’s quite the negotiation.
The to-do list looms large, but we’re still tending our winter crops and planting late winter crops, all the while trying desperately not to work more than 40 hours/week. That’s a break right? We keep pushing goals further and further into the future and it feels like we’re just spinning our wheels.
This must be what it felt like all those years ago when we first entered began, but all we can recall is washing radish bunches under fluorescent lights late into the evening. Something we laugh about now, but it must have felt a little like this back then. A little like your one mistake away from being completely out of control.
We take comfort in that. We survived. We’re still here, 11 years later, entering yet again a brave new world.
