What a beautifully-told story and I agree with Erin -- your garden is huge and beautiful! I'm almost comfortable calling myself a farmer, though I still feel like I'm earning that privilege. But what you wrote about the 'why' and the feeling you get when farming -- I get it and I share your joy. Thanks you!

What a wonderful essay. You are indeed a farmer, and an inspiration to the rest of us. Thank you for sharing your story. The picture of your garden was beautiful.:)
