Now is the time...


...to test and trust the powers of self-conviction, or perhaps self-suggestion, that we do have sun!

Here, Josh is harvesting chamomile with our new hand-rake, which we dried for tea this past week. The forecase shows clouds and rain through Wednesday, which is good for broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, cabbage, peas. Not so good for the tomatoes I need to prune or the tractoring we were to do on Tuesday. But such is the wheel...and so to stay hovering about it (and not on it...)

The fields are really looking nice, notwithstanding the threatening rye at every turn - but such prospects! which one must enjoy for themselves as prospects if not for actual fruit as of the present...

And one more bit of evidence of prospects...

This is the salt shaker that lived in the truck last week, there to offer taste to the numerous hard-boiled eggs I have been taking with me to the field - have been needing mid-morning protein boosts to feed my 4-moth old resident, evidence of whom is now manifest in my inability to fit into any of my old work clothes...

...which leads to imminent shopping trips during these upcoming rainy days!!!!!
(well, at least to salvation army for old stretchy skirts and shorts...nary a fashionable maternity farm-fashion designer shop to be found, even in Burlington)...
