A customer just told me the other day that you don’t ever stop learning until you are six feet under. She’s right. And I am glad. But what have I learned this past week? Well, first off that farming is very misunderstood. If there were never any green berries or white berries or even any pink berries out in the field then our season would be oh so very short and the berries would be gone before we knew it. I dare say even faster than that. So, even though some don’t appreciate that not all the berries are ripe at the very moment of picking, I for one am very happy for that. I’m learning patience. Because no matter if one or all of us just wish that these berries would turn to a marvelous and beautiful juicy red now, that is just not in our hands or our timing. So we’ll slow down and enjoy this short lived season and maybe those slow turning berries will give us just one more day to be out picking and marvelling and enjoying this here farm. This is Manitoba. Really. It’s going to snow soon.
Happy picking. Or happy picking up. Or just happy. That’s good too. Thanks for coming to the farm. And do come if you haven’t yet. We’d be happy to have you visit us:)
