You know the phrase, "grows like a weed?", enough said.
For the last two weeks Kaitlyn and I have been in the fields weeding. I really don’t stress about it because it takes your mind to another place and it's kind of relaxing…if you can imagine that.
It’s not without its hazards though. You are on your hands and knees, in the baking sun, pulling everything but the very plant your are trying to protect. The rows go on for as far as the eyes can see and six hours goes by in a blink.
You really don’t know land and the soil until you’ve done this simple task. It’s so necessary.
Today we head back out to fight the good fight!
