And We're Off!

Updated: Mar 6, 2019

All farm leases start on the first of March in Iowa. Today is that day.


Beautiful Icy Iowa

I took a long walk around the farm...our farm.  Granted, we are only leasing it, but it is now my responsibility, my charge.

The whole farm is frozen right now. I am waiting to be able to begin frost seeding, filling time with paperwork, cutting fence posts and feeding cows.

   I miss my wife back in San Francisco, but the seeding is important and can't be put off. The walk grounds me.  I am finally a farmer.

It is the first of March.  It is a new day, a new life.
