High Summer on the Farm

July is a voraciously busy month on the farm.  It is a month where you are straddling multiple seasons- in the throes of Summer, prepping for Fall and planning for Winter.  The days are getting shorter, the angle of the sun is changing, the harvest is reaching its peak and the farmer always seems to be in perpetual motion.  One foot in front of the other, one chore after another, moving forward, feeling behind.

Our July has been exceptionally busy here at FullCircle Farm-  gardening, weeding, watering, harvesting, cultivating, seeding, transplanting, thinning, trellising, mowing, composting, feeding, haying, watering, rotating, hoop coop moving, slaughtering, processing, breeding, brooding, hive inspecting, supering, canning, freezing, drying, pickling, jam making, equipment repairing, equipment building, tree cutting, limb chipping, wood stacking, sales & marketing, helping, laughing, loving, eating and sleeping well.

Even as overflowing as this July has been it has purpose and reason.  It feels right,  It feels good.  It is where I belong.

A Beautiful but Busy July
