Changes in the air…

May 1, 2012

My apologies for blog silence as of late.  There has been a lot of change in our lives recently.  All good, but still, change is change.  Sean, Aidan and I said good-bye to our home last week.  It has been the longest address Sean or I have had, and the only one Aidan has ever known.  We are happy about the move, but saying good-bye was harder than we thought, especially to Aidan’s beloved Palo Verde that glows yellow this time of year outside his bedroom window.

You would think on a farm I would be more used to things changing and growing… the seasons come and go, the weather has its own opinion on when we should plant, water can have a mind of its own, crops have their moment and then they are done.  The only constant on a farm is change, and yet I am still getting my bearings after this past month.

Of course, it was also the farm that reminded me this morning that there is beauty in the transition…

I am excited for what is to come (and to see Sun Gold tomatoes once again in the front garden), but I am also looking forward to planting a Palo Verde outside Aidan’s window.  Some things don’t need to change.

    Been thinking of you all! We’ll have to catch-up one of these days. 🙂

    What are we to do without you and the likes of your farm team? You have added so much to the community. Your family has contributed greatly in ways we cannot express. Can we expect your clan to produce such high-quality produce again soon? Your willingness to move forward gives us expectations that exceed our own imagination! Please let us know how we can stay connected to your protected organic space, as well as your family’s culinary lives.

      Jo – thank you for your kind comments. Sean and I do not live on the farm, but we are moving closer to it. The farm belongs to Bob and Marsha, but we are all a part of it and will be for a long time to come. I am touched by your words, thank you.

    It is very special when a family business becomes a community jewel. Thanks to all the McLendons whose spirits and expertise have made our lives infinitely better.

    I see corn in the picture. Is that scheduled to be sold in the markets?
