I have to say that I find it strange that people buy farms for more relaxed lifestyles. Well... maybe it's more a reference to the stress levels on the farm than anything else. Because sitting pretty and relaxing isn't an option.
My brothers are all tending to animals. My mom and I are handling the guest house renovation and now, picking and packing figs.
Perhaps the fact that we're so busy is because the farm was uninhabited for seven years. Very little infrastructure survived, so we're having to put everything back together. Which means that although we now have pick-ups and quads, working on the farm isn't unlike what the first settlers here must have experienced.
We do, however, have tv and internet to keep us warm at night.
But yeah... it's almost 2 pm right now, and my butt is dragging. It's hard work to pick and orchard clean.
Still, I'm not really going to rest too much right now. I have a ton of writing, editing and needlepointing to do.
What are you up to today?
