For my month long stint on the farm, I am slowly becoming acclimated to the ways of working the land. While this farm is not large compared to others, its still a massive amount of property in my eyes.
I’m working 5 hours a day, with breaks of course. My hours are distributed as I see fit. Unfortunately I’ve been approaching this farming thing like I do corporate work — when it shows up on my desk, I want to complete the task and get it off my desk. Which means I’m tiring myself before I get the majority of my farm work done. Anyway, I’m figuring it out – learning tricks and shortcuts.
Farm work is hard. I do not attempt to look cute while I’m working, but I do wear cute underwear while I’m doing it. I can barely wave hello since I know I will need to bend down to pick up branches right after the pic is done. But I’m doing it. My body will thank me in about a month.
