The season is upon us…and I really think as fast as it crept up, it will be gone. Isn’t that just the way life goes. And so we try to enjoy it. And we have been…meeting so many people, seeing so many familiar faces. We are learning as we go here, this year will not be perfect, there is already so much we wish we knew. But it is worth the adventure. We are committed to growing organically, this gives us even more to learn! These berries are so big and juicy and sweet, we are just thankful for this year. And what next year brings is not in our hands. We will just keep going and growing and moving forward in this adventure.
And taking naps as need be:)
We have been watching all these plants start to bloom and grow. It is amazing to see and better yet amazing to taste. I think we have all been grabbing the red strawberries as we work in the fields, tasting the first fruits of all our labours. Because truly this is a family affair. Right down to our three and six year olds in the fields picking off the blossoms of the plants just planted. And so we are hoping to be open this weekend for our first picking day! We are now taking orders for prepicked too. And in the midst of all these blossoms and strawberries we have added to our family…a little cocker spaniel named Percy. He is adorable and sweet…and pees on the floor even though we just took him outside 30 seconds before! He is only ten weeks old but I for one cannot wait until he figures that one out! At least the floor is being spot cleaned…a lot! We also have little ones to add to our petting farm…more on that tomorrow though. Lots to do in preparation for our opening…lots we won’t get done that we so want to. But I am trying to remember this is just our first year…there is time to grow!
