I love the idea of my land being productive. What I don't love is the money it would take to buy a tractor and the other things needed to farm it. We are only big enough to be a hobby farm and I don't have that kind of spare cash to invest in a hobby right now. Maybe someday but not now. So what we do is we have a local farmer farm it. It gives me the joy of seeing the land be productive, makes Dan happy cause he doesn't have to mow all that cleared space back there, and it makes the farmer happy. Win win win!
Anyway he alternates crops and this year is soy beans. Not my favorite crop. I like when he does corn because having a huge corn field out back just feels like country but the soy beans are pretty this year.
So as I stood there I looked at my field full of soy beans, my cherry tomato plant that is doing wonderful, the shed that Dan and his dad built a couple years ago, the farm house out behind ours that a young couple is restoring, and I thought I LOVE the view from my backdoor!
I took these picture this morning
I took this one first with the camera on my phone. Then I realized there wasn't enough light.
By the time I went back out with my camera to take this one the beautiful sky had passed.
Here is my list from my thankfulness journal this week:
Hope you all have a peace filled day!
