11.4.19 // Obstacles & overcoming them ✨ When we bought our acreage 2 years ago I knew that I had a lot of hard work ahead of me. What I didn’t know is the amount of strength, perseverance, confidence, and problem solving skills I’d gain. Today I was planting my first crop of garlic for the year. I was taking my time, digging out all the rocks I could find, last year our soil was so compacted this task wasn’t even possible! So I’m digging and planting.. and I discover a HUGE rock. Like as big as my torso! Two years ago I think I would have just left it be, or waited until I had some help. But not today. I got the tools I needed, and kept at it until the rock was removed! This may seem simple, but it’s just an example of how much I’ve grown in my time farming. I feel really proud, and I’ll feel proud every time I sit on this rock to take a rest while out in the garden.
