a lot of crap …

My garden has never looked better.  Last year we dealt with a lot of  crap from the past many years. Years upon years mucked out.  Living this life there is always more being dished out.  It all went into a garden.  Now this season, after years of collecting this crap… it is going to good use.  Who could have imagined, as the layers built up again and again, that it will all lead up to this?

We couldn’t be here in this place … collecting this harvest … tending this growth … sitting back and resting in it’s continual growth… 

We couldn’t be right here in this amazing thriving healthy life if it weren’t for having been dealt all that crap.

I putter around this farm with a baby on my hip …

…watching little girls have tea parties under the big willow…

…following my husBen out to the bees as he tries to keep up with their honey flow …

…haying the sheep and scratching them behind the ears …

…checking the angora rabbits nest boxes for babies due any day …

…looking up and across the field as my older kids come running home with stories (and bellies full of cake) …

…making batch after batch of new ice cream flavors …

…going out to meet friends who stop by all week long, not just on Sundays anymore …

…pouring fresh milk into jars from my healthy ewes …

…listening to this HusBen of mine make me smile all day and night long …

…watching this new lamb (Stache) bowl the chickens over and run to hide behind his guardian, Garden….

… as I tie up pea shoots onto a trellis I am thankful…so thankful to all the contributors of the crap that we had to go through just to get to this place…. this growth.

not just growth… but this amazing life.

Don’t discount the crap you go through …  because in a new season, maybe when those animals are long gone , you will have the most amazing growth.

And to think…. This is just the beginning
