Optimism Required

I’ve read that in order to be a farmer, one has to be an optimistic person.

It’s easy to understand why.

Any person who believes that these boxes of bare earth will bear oodles of vegetables by summer/fall needs to see the glass as half full.

Motivation doesn’t hurt either. There is much work to be done before I can plant the first seeds and take the first step in creating my dream veggie garden.

Fingers are crossed that Elly is old enough to help or at least willing enough to play nearby while I do all the work. Last year, gardening was a tag team effort. I invited my neighbor to sit with us whenever we were outside gardening. She would inevitably catch Elly trying to sneak off to the school playground a block away.
