What do you do when it seem everything is working against you? Trust God is in control and that He will not give you more than you can handle, get up and put one foot in front of the other and do what you can. Things have a way of working out so long as we do our part… a lot of people have gotten really made at me for saying that. Let me explain, it may not work out like you want it to, but if you are looking to learn something, than trials are one of the best teachers. This year started out with all the onion and leek starts dying, then the starts just were not growing quite right in the starts mix… so surely the direct seeded plants would work better? So we thought, but they would germinate then just sit there. Not the way we had hoped to start our first year on our first piece of land purchased.
Not all was bad… God has a way of encouraging us when we feel down! I grew the best carrots I have ever grown, in a place where…so I have been told…that no one can grow good carrots. Then the ever-bearing strawberries, that other local farmers said would not work, made the most delicious berries my mom ever tasted, go figure God is good! Michelle, and I met at the Louisville skate park some 10 years ago and so one night we thought we would go and play around down at the park, and well Michelle rolled her ankle making me a lone farmer for the next six weeks. After she was just about back to being on the farm again we where in a fifty five mile an hour head on collision, which ended up with Michelle having a dislocated wrist with three fractures.
After they reduced the wrist then put two screws one pin and one wire in her wrist then ongoing rehab….things are defiantly not back to normal. The food in the field did eventually take off and that would have been great, but you have to be on the farm not at the hospital to tend to all that produce.
We have been blessed to meet some great folks at our farmers market at Rainbow Blossom.
So all in all this will be a great start to the great adventure of learning how to grow in grace, By Gods grace.
