confessions of an organic farmer IV


Taylor and I often use the garden hose to hose each other off before we go inside for the day.

When Taylor text messages me “how are the children doing?” I know he is referring to our seedlings.

I sort of dig my farmers tan in the middle of the summer.

When we wash our hands the sink turns brown.

I fear birds/gophers/aphids/deer/rabbits/beetles/any plant killing creature out there more than I fear god himself.

People don’t recognize me when I’m not wearing a hat.

I eat. a LOT!


If you haven’t tried these kale, mushroom, and chickpea stuffed sweet potatoes you better get on it before the weather get’s hot!

    You crack me up. I LOVE when dirt clouds up the sink when washing my hands…even better when taking a shower…hopefully that doesn’t sound gross but there’s nothing like getting squeaky clean after rolling around in the mud 😉 Hope you have a great weekend with your man and “kids”!! 🙂

    I like you. I really just do. When my husband and I first met a few years ago, we had a goal of starting our own farm too. We both work in agriculture, and so far, haven’t had the guts to give up the paycheck and do it yet. But someday! We will!
