Hey everyone! I’ve decided to change this blog’s banner image to reflect the crazy circumstances in which I’ve found myself these days. As of yesterday, Chris and I have started to work on an organic and sustainable farm in Minnesota! It’s about 140 acres, with a greenhouse, loads of vegetables, fruits and livestock. We are really pumped — we even got up at 5:30am today, and we don’t even work on the weekend!
The above image is a closeup of some baby Bright Lights chard seedlings that we’re starting by the greenhouse before we plant them in the field. One amazing bonus is that we get to eat the vegetables we grow, so we’ll probably be eating a lot of these soon. It’s really awesome to be able to walk from the kitchen into a field of crops and just cut some off for our meals. As a city kid, I’ve never experienced anything like this — I’ve done it with herbs and tomatoes, sure, but this is really something else.
I’ll make sure to update once a week with videos and stuff! This’ll be crazy!
