Good things come to those who wait and good things come to those who work hard. The people that I have had the greatest opportunity to work with these past couple of days at Green Gardens are some of the hardest working people I know. Being a farmer is one of the least appreciated and so very under-rated lifestyles. I was going to say professions, but let's be honest, it's a complete lifestyle. Planning, sowing, tending, harvesting, packaging, selling, over and over and over again is extremely exhausting. Despite all of this people are doing it, trying to make a living, and feeding us underappreciative consumers.
Would I be willing to get up everyday, go to a job, and have no real certainty that everything wouldn't be destroyed at any given moment? I don't even want to start thinking about all the things that could go wrong and destroy a farmers' entire livelihood. Let's just say it is super risky. But then again, the hope and the encouragement comes with the beauty of creation and the rewards of amazing food produced.
If there was no sun, none of this would be possible.
Life so tender and fragile.
Many many investments with great hopes for great rewards!
