Evidently the calendar is mocking us...yet again.
We barely get into feeling that it is summertime then suddenly.....
A school year jumped out and is grabbing everyone's attention. Hm. What to do now?
We are just completing week 11 of the CSA on Tuesday and will begin week 12 on Thursday. We run a 20 week season, so we are officially past the half-way mark. But, there is still a long way to go.
Perhaps the most difficult thing that happens this time of year is the transition T has to execute as she goes from veg farmer to college prof. There is still plenty to do on the farm, of course. And, she still wants to do work on the farm and enjoy being outside. But, the teaching gig calls - and it does (and rightfully so) take the majority of her time and attention.
Two of our seasonal helpers have already stopped coming to the farm since school activities (and school) has started for each of them. And, Dr. D will also go back to his mild-mannered self as a prof as well. Or, is the farm worker Dr. D the mild-mannered one? Perhaps we should audit one of his classes and find out?
So, this is the annual reminder to CSA members that there are so many hours in the day and there is only so much of R to go around. Things always seem to work out fine - but the first week or so in transition can be mildly stressful.
And, now that I've posted it here, all will be well and there will be no stress. Therapeutic...nice.
