My how things have changed

This time of year is good for dreaming.  I know you are supposed to set goals for the new year in January, but you have to do some dreaming and researching first.  I’d like to offer the big list of all the projects we are going to tackle in 2016, but I’m still enjoying the dreaming stage where possibilities are endless and the realities of labor and finances take a back seat.  Soon enough all of those plans will come into form.  Every year when I begin to look at the goals set previously it is easy to get discouraged by all the things that seem to reappear unfinished year after year.  The truth of the matter is that some things just take time, and usually more time than you anticipated.  What gives me encouragement is looking at all the changes that have happened at Peace of Earth Farm in our 6 years here.  Sometimes it takes looking at dramatic before and after pictures to remember all that was accomplished cart by cart, shovel by shovel, seed by seed.  So- here is what we have been doing in a series of pictures.  Though there are many hours of planning, seeding, sheet mulching, weeding, driving, feeding animals, … that can’t be seen in these pictures- what can be evidenced is lots of tree clearing, garden building, animal moving, and soil improving.

    You have accomplished so much in 6 years. That is exactly how long we have been at our country place – yours is a great model to follow.
