Plowing Pictures, Before

I got these pictures of Kayla when she was ten months along.  These are the last pictures I have of her before Emma came, a couple days later.

Kayla was helping me plow up this garden.  I did most of the plowing, but she was out there with me helping where she could.

On the best of days, this is what farming looks like to me.

We moved the chickens off this garden the day before.

We use the tractor to make straight rows to guide our planting.

  1. I am still raking . . . I paused because of the rain. Do you still want leaves? I’m raking them up anyway ’cause I think it’s better for the grass. Kayla is stunningly beautiful and we’re so happy that your family is well. Thank you for sharing! Jeanne

  2. It took me a while to find it, but here it is, from Wendell Berry.

    One of the most important resources that a garden makes available for use, is the gardener’s own body. A garden gives the body the dignity of working in its own support. It is a way of rejoining the human race.

    Thanks for your wonderful photos, that took me to some wonderful words.
