“Do You Ever Feel Like Quitting?”
Take a look at any news article and the love/hate of farmers and others in agriculture is clear in the comment section. What people want and what they say they want doesn’t match.
Over the last few months there’s been much happening behind the scenes. That continues, with a state of Alabama growers permit in hand to sell at farmers markets.
However, as things start to inch forward other things provide major discouragement. So why do we do it?
We plant seeds to see them come up and knocked down by storms. We start turkeys, chicks and young rabbits and see them get sick or chilled or a lon accident and die. We hear people want what we’re doing but just aren’t ready to buy.
Begging isn’t healthy. A solid belief in what we’re doing keeps from quitting, but discouragement is a heavy burden. There’s only so many hours in the day and right now it’s critical to do some things off line. It keeps unpleasantness from infecting the normal tone also.
With that in mind, it’s time for a two week tech cleanse – backing off the blog and such. We hope that the little bit scheduled in the time will be enjoyable but I need some regroup time from a dark space. Time to deal with it before it’s a monster, and asking, begging, requesting help just doesn’t work. There’s no vacation, but a little time to deal with some issues is needed. I’ll be back, will be not totally unplugged but need some review time.
Stay tuned…it’ll be over in no time and I’ll be back.
