The cover crop is almost waist high! It did well with the little rain we had, and I’m sad to say goodbye to all this soon since it looks like it’ll be a dry year. I need to clear it early in order to plant wheat with any chance of rain.
I am grateful to unions for fighting for the weekend. Without the weekend, I wouldn’t be able to work two full-time jobs and coordinate several other projects.
So, thank goodness for vacation days. I racked them up and finally went on a honeymoon. We admired the full moon from the center of an Amazonian lake as a new Gregorian year dawned. We tried wild fruits with flavors more complex than a Mandelbrot set, and I poked bright orange mushrooms and oohed and ahhhed at deep purple ones. Through the varied ecosystems, elevations, and climates, I thought about work and grains for only one day. Truly a miracle!
On our spiritual journey, I discovered that my spirit foods are mangoes, cotton candy, and som tam. Ask me about that in person some time.
I’m not giving you all the details because honeymoons and romance are about mystery. Especially for the sake of my parents and potential progeny. The point is that I feel refreshed and ready for 2018.
And it’s starting off with me talking at people:
See you soon!
